Although this event is a fundraiser for the Waller Creek Conservancy, it’s no black-tie gala. Instead, families can spread out blankets for a casual community picnic, with the option of bringing their own dinner or purchasing a picnic basket. Chefs from Austin restaurants, like Olamaie, Juliet and Salt Lick BBQ, have prepared dinners for two.

Although most have to be reserved ahead of time, Easy Tiger and Goodall’s Kitchen will also provide a limited number of baskets for walk-up guests.

Details: 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Free to attend; baskets are $20-$175. Palm Park, 711 E. Third St. wallercreekpicnic.org.
