Open Field Activity: Baby Picnic
Description: We invite you to our first Baby Picnic…think Corporate Retreat for Toddlers. The event is to get artists (and their kids!) to meet one another in a playful and creative environment. Join us for baby networking, live music, toddler happy hour and even some kiddy karaoke. Business cards will be provided for professional networking purposes. Bring a blanket and your family.

This is a free event and open to anyone. We will be sure to prepare enough business cards and milk. Hope to see you there.
Date of Activity: July 8, 2012, from 2-5 pm.
