PKNIK'S DNA

PKNIK was born out of the desire to create something unique and unprecedented for people who enjoy curated experiences. We are proud to say that we were the first luxury picnic business to open in Canada. 

 

Our commitment goes beyond offering only event planning services. We always aim to imagine the extraordinary so that your PKNIK experience stays forever engraved in your minds, hearts, and souls. We found the finest decor elements and partnered up with the best in the event industry to offer you mind-blowing memories. Our PKNIKs are designed with passion, creativity, and the utmost commitment to delivering the exceptional.

 

The core of our creative energy comes from all the beauty the planet has to offer, and our styling direction is propelled by sophistication, elegance, and refinement. We value innovation, excellence, attention to detail, and top-notch customer service. We believe our clients deserve nothing but the best, hence why we constantly strive to raise the bar and offer distinctive luxury picnic options. 

 

From heart-stopping proposals to one-of-a-kind birthdays, from exclusive corporate meetings to exceptional bridal showers, our distinctive PKNIK experience will leave everyone speechless. 

 

Whatever you are celebrating, prepare to be swept off your feet!
