Wikipedia’s Great American Wiknic 2012 | Golden Gate Park
>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
George Washington Bicentennial Grove | 25th Ave. and MLK Jr. (South) Dr., San Francisco, CA
The San Francisco Wiknic will be held on June 23, 2012. Come to the George Washington Grove in Golden Gate Park dressed in character as a page you enjoyed editing. Look for people wearing these badges and wear one yourself if you’re inclined.
It’s a potluck picnic so let others know (on Wikipedia of course) what you’ll be bringing.
A Bit of History
The first national Wiknic was held in June 2011, and 16 cities took part with Wiknics large and small. This mid-summer date (with a local raindate the following day) is generally the weekend before the U.S. Fourth of July holiday weekend. The Wiknic concept was modeled on the Wikipedia 10 celebrations and on the past success of Wiknics in New York City. The idea of a Wiknic is to have something low-impact, with people bringing their own picnic food and perhaps items to share.
