Catered Picnics

We’ll Do All the Work – You Have All the Fun!

Group picnics have played a major role in the grand tradition of Waldameer summertime fun for over 120 years. Each summer, many groups enjoy fully catered events in one of the Park’s beautiful picnic groves. With a Waldameer catered event, we do all the work and you can have all the fun with your family and friends during your special day. With our great prices, extended hours for food and beverage service, and use of your grove for the entire day, you’ll find that a group picnic at Waldameer is by far the best value around.

“We had a terrific time at Waldameer Park. Thank you for your efforts in making our company picnic a success. Everyone was so professional and helpful as usual. We appreciate it.” -Rosanna M.
