AUBURN — The city and the Auburn Recreation Department are hosting a Red Table Picnic from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, in Festival Plaza, to support the L/A Art Walk.

Although modeled after the diner en blanc concept founded in Paris almost 30 years ago, Auburn’s pop-up picnic will be uniquely Auburn. The small “bistro sets” (tables and chairs) in the plaza will provide an opportunity to sit, socialize and be near the water fountain.

Red Table Picnic is a unique community dinner party. The soiree on Friday functions much like the Paris experience except diners, dressed in red, attend the picnic-style evening meal.

Participants should bring tables and chairs, tableware and food. They should also bring a trash bag to bring home trash; diners are expected to leave the plaza just as clean as it was before they arrived.

Guests are encouraged to wear red clothing, including hats and creative attire.
