Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park to Host “National Picnic Day”

Big Stone Gap, VA. The Southwest Virginia Museum Historical State Park to host a “National Picnic Day.” This self-guided event will be held on Tuesday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on the museum grounds.

National Picnic Day encourages everyone to pack up their lunch and take it outdoors. Baskets and blankets seem to make everything taste better. Eating outdoors has a certain charm, so grab a friend, a co-worker, a family member, or just come by yourself and enjoy National Picnic Day under the beautiful shade trees at the park. Grab a sandwich or go extravagant and bring a full course meal. What better way to celebrate the peak of spring than by observing National Picnic Day at the park.

This is a free event for all ages. No registration is required for this event.

For more information about this event, please call the park at (276) 523-1322.
The award-winning Virginia State Parks are managed by the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.
