Picnicking

"Take in the beautiful scenery of the University of Colorado Boulder campus. [Or visit] the Shakespeare Gardens with big, beautiful trees providing lots of shade on the grass. Flower beds ring the courtyard, each inspired by Shakespeare’s plays. (There may even be strolling minstrels!)" —In Good Taste Denver

75 minutes before showtime, our grounds come alive with picnickers. Bring your dinner with you to the Hellems Lawn and Shakespeare Gardens, open for picnicking with friends and family. We’ll have light refreshments for sale onsite, but we encourage you to bring your own pre-show picnic to enjoy on the surrounding lawns, or stop by one of the many small businesses in the area that support the festival.
