Grant Park picnic contest Free Agenda Recommended

When: Sat., Aug. 11, 6 p.m. 2012

Great music can inspire passion, exhilaration, and—picnics. In the first-ever Grant Park Music Festival Picnic Contest, music lovers will be asked to whip up a spread inspired by the evening's performance, Haydn's The Seasons. The challengers will be judged on creativity, presentation, and "inclusion of the themes from the evening's score, including peasant dances, thunderstorms, hunting expeditions, and work/labor." The winner receives the Grand Golden Picnic Basket. —Sharon Lurye
