Leaving early?

What if we want to stay longer?

That’s our goal! This is an addon when you are first scheduling. Additionally, you can text us at if you want to extend your time. There is an extra $ per hour or $15 per half hour charge.

What if I damage the setup?

We are happy to clean up after you. That is part of our service, and we understand about little spills! But if there is irreparable damage to our equipment, like stains, dirt, mud, etc., that we are unable to remove, the contact for the picnic will be notified and the credit card on file will be charged.

How often do you clean the picnic setup? What COVID-19 precautions are Foothills Picnics taking?

We sanitize and clean all of the equipment and kitchenware before every picnic. Our team members are fully vaccinated. We will not be there when you arrive unless you want us to take a few group photos before your picnic time starts. Hand sanitizer is provided complementary. Please reach out to if you have any further questions or concerns.
