The company picnic is a beloved tradition with many firms. Companies often need “Team Bonding”. The company picnic offers employees a chance to let their hair down and interact with coworkers in a fun, relaxed setting. A company picnic gives you an opportunity to show your employees how much you value their contribution. It lets them know they’re an important part of a team effort and that means increased camaraderie and renewed trust, which can lead to increased productivity.
Planning and booking a company picnic with Presto Partyz is extremely simple. To provide you with a picnic proposal, all we need to know are 2 things:
- Approximately how many attendees you have had at your picnic in the past or if you have never had a picnic, we can offer a suggested attendee count based on your number of employees.
- Where are you planning to hold your event: The closer you hold your event to your company site, the better your attendance will be. 65% percent of our picnics are held at company sites, 30% are held at a local park in their area and 5% are held inside arena buildings. We can take a grass field and turn it into a festive atmosphere. Often times “tent, table and chair” costs can be reduced or eliminated based on what is available at your company site or Local Park.
Based on this information, we send you a “suggested” customized picnic proposal covering every detail such as entertainment, food & beverage, interactive games, staffing requirements, tents and event services. With Presto Partyz, you can benefit from over 15 years experience in producing company picnics. We have gained the knowledge of knowing how large your tent should be, how many tables and chairs you will need, what is the best mix of entertainment equipment for your number of guests and what Team Building Games are appropriate to cover all ages and personalities. Once you have reviewed our proposal, we can make adjustments based on your requests.
We will gladly come to your facility to offer a presentation and discuss your event in person. There is no replacement for personal contact and we value the relationships we have built with our clients.
There are pros and cons to weekday picnics versus weekend picnics. Company picnics held during a workday will ensure a greater attendance for employees. After all, your staff would be in the office anyway. On the other hand, weekday picnics can often make it difficult if families are involved with spouse and kid’s schedules. Our Sunday picnics actually work fantastic. We generally schedule Sunday picnics from 1:00 to 5:00. Your guests are given ample time to attend church and afterwards attend the picnic to enjoy great food & fun. Saturday’s are the most popular picnic day, however unless you book in advance, equipment and availability may be limited so be sure to book in advance.
IMPORTANT! The closer you hold your event to your company site, the better your attendance will be. Since 1993, Presto Partyz has been working in conjunction with local parks in 7 states to provide corporate groups with an old-fashioned family picnic experience. Most of our picnics are held at company sites or local parks. We have found that picnic attendance drops in relation to how far away the event is held from your company site. We can take a grass field and turn it into a festive atmosphere. Companies often organize facility tours in conjunction with their annual picnic. One great thing about Presto Partyz is that we can arrange your event to be anywhere! We are 100% mobile.
Presto Partyz has developed a reputation for providing the freshest and most delicious food in the outdoor picnic industry.

This aspect of your event will “make it or break it”. Presto Partyz has the largest inventory of entertainment activities in our region of the country. The key to a successful picnic is having the proper mix of entertainment for all ages. Interactive game shows and contests will make the event memorable for all who attend. Whether you are participating or just watching, we guarantee you will be amused by seeing your coworkers ride motorized toilets, toss water balloons, race giant tricycles and who knows what else.
We require a 30% deposit to secure your picnic date and reserve equipment.
Most of our picnics are planned 4 to 6 months in advance, some even up to a year in advance. We do get booked solid and find ourselves occasionally in the unfortunate situation of being forced to turn down events. We will not take on more business than we can comfortably handle.
