Thrive Summer Picnic & Celebration

Join Thrive East Bay for a summer picnic & celebration in the beautiful Redwood Regional Park!

We will gather for the afternoon to play, rest, eat, laugh, sing, and connect in the fullness of summer. We'll be getting our outdoor games on with frisbees, kickball, badminton (whatever we feel inspired to co-create!) and you can just bring your blankets and tents/umbrellas to talk, read and lounge in the sun & shade together. There is a children's playground nearby for the little ones, beautiful hiking trails to adventure on, and if you haven't yet been to a rehearsal for the Thrive Street Choir and want to learn some movement songs, there will be singing and music-making from 3 - 4pm.

WHEN: Sunday, July 23 from 1pm - 4pm (you are welcome to come earlier if you'd like to spend the whole day!)

WHERE: Quail Meadow picnic site at Redwood Regional Park
7867 Redwood Road, Oakland, CA 94619

(The Quail Meadow picnic site is the first meadow with tables that you will see by the parking lot. There will be clear signs. Please note that there is a $5 parking fee so carpool if you can.)
