Picnic

Picnic

The Series at Lavender Hill Farm is unlike any other music venue you have ever been to. We host concerts in our renovated historic barn, the music genera is always changing, and B.Y.O. Picnicking is part of the experience.

The B.Y.O (Bring Your Own) Picnic tradition has been a staple of the concert series since long before it was introduced to Lavender Hill Farm. What was once a pot-luck dinner party with musical entertainment, has evolved into a true Northern Michigan experience. Guests of The Series are invited to bring their own food and beverages and relax, socialize and soak in the beautiful surroundings that is our lavender farm.

On concert nights, our doors open at 6 PM and the shows start at 7:30 PM. Pack your own picnic, call in an order at Horton Bay General Store and grab it on your way in or (New this year), pre- order a picnic from Petoskey Cheese and have it waiting for you at the farm when you arrive!
