This summer, Picnic with the Pops is back and better than ever.

The 2019 Nationwide Picnic with the Pops will kick off with a huge weekend. On Friday, June 14 the Grammy Award-winning Kool and the Gang will take the stage, followed on Saturday, June 15 by rockband (and legends) Jefferson Starship.

The Columbus Symphony and Principal Pops conductor Stuart Chafetz will be bringing all sorts of incredible performances to the Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion in the Columbus Commons throughout the summer. For each concert, the gates will open at 6 p.m. and the concerts will start at 8 p.m. For the full Picnic with the Pops guide, please visit PicnicWithThePops.com.

The events will be ticketed, with general admission lawn tickets available for $30 in advance or $35 the day of the show. You can grab your tickets online, or in person at the CAPA Ticket Center, 39 E. State St. If you purchase lawn tickets, be sure to bring a blanket or chair for seating!

In addition to GA tickets, you can also purchase Table Seating. Tables of 8 or 10 are available, ranging from $360-$850 per table. There is catering available. Guests who want to purchase table seating should call 614-469-0939.

One of the best things about Picnic with the Pops is that guests can bring their own food and beverages with them, including beer and/or wine! Don’t wanna drink warm beer? Don’t worry. You can bring a cooler, as long as it’s less than 2.5 feet in height! You can get all the details for Nationwide Picnic With the Pops here.
