What happens if it rains?
The weather can be unpredictable at times but don't let that ruin your day! We suggest having a back-up plan such as indoors at someone house. You will have 24 hours to decide if you would like to change the location of you picnic, wait it out or cancel with a 100% refund. If you do decide to wait it out (being that the weather is so unpredictable here in New Orleans) and it does rain and you do not have an alternative location, you will not receive a refund and will not be able to reschedule. While there may not be a picnic, the collaborating companies and NOLA PopUp Picnic work very hard to make sure everything is ready and good to go for the picnic.
**Picnics will not be set up if the ground is wet.**
What if I have an emergency and have to cancel my picnic?

What happens if I need to leave early?
If you need to leave earlier than the arranged time, please let us know at least 30 minutes in advance. You can contact us through call or text message. You are responsible for the picnic until we return.
