The Picnic

August 25 | 4:00-7:00PM

We are picnic people! This means we believe in opening our doors and arms to our neighbors and inviting them to experience the hospitality of Jesus, and nothing says hospitality like smoked barbecue! In addition to the barbecue, we have a lot of great activities, but the absolute best attraction of The Picnic is the people you will meet! Atlanta is a big city of busy people; Northside Church is a warm community where we greet old friends and welcome new ones.

The Picnic is FREE, but we ask that you RSVP.

We have exciting activities for kids of all ages! Under the tent you’ll find barbecue, coleslaw, and mac-n-cheese along with an ice cream sundae bar, popcorn bar and live music!

In the Backyard you’ll find Zoo to You, featuring exotic animals from other continents, pony rides, face painting, and tattoos.

In the Turnaround, we’ll have a car show featuring both vintage and modern vehicles!

In addition to all the food, music and animals we have a Cornhole tournament. Think of this as your pre-tailgating warm up! Grab a partner and sign up for the tournament now. Winners will receive one FULL year of bragging rights!
