Yes, Summer is finally here! I can’t imagine a better way to enjoy family time than with good vibes, a picnic basket, and music that my kid and I can enjoy. This is why I’m so excited about this Summer Season at the Hollywood Bowl which starts this Saturday, June 23.
The venue is one of the most iconic places in LA, and home to the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and is the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. One of the reasons why I like the Hollywood Bowl so much is because this venue is family friendly, and you can bring a picnic basket and a bottle of wine.
The Bowl pays tribute to the diversity of music from around the world including Blues, Jazz, Classical, World Music (Seu Gorge is coming. Picture me jumping), Pink Martini and even the Mamma Mia musical will all be here this year!
The Perfect Family Picnic to enjoy at the Hollywood Bowl
If you are looking for some ideas for a perfect afternoon picnic with your kids at the Hollywood Bowl here is an easy, healthy, and yummy picnic basket that you can prepare.
- Greek Salad
- Chicken fingers and chicken nuggets
- Pitta Brend
- Wine (Very, very important) My suggestion, a Pino Grigio would be fantastic for warm summer weather, but reds work well too.
See the map below for the Hollywood Bowl picnic areas, but you can also eat at your seats.
Picnic Reservations: You may reserve picnic areas 10, 11, 12, 13 & 14. Contact Group Ticketing for more information.
