Break out the picnic blankets and baskets!

Picnic in the Park returns to the Davis Farmers Market on Wednesday from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Central Park, Third and C streets in downtown Davis. The family-friendly celebration features live music by local bands from 5 p.m. to dark, an international food fair, a beer and wine garden and plenty of entertainment for the kids.

A wide array of dinner specialties will tantalize picnickers, from vendors such as El Mariachi Taqueria, Raja’s Tandoor, Kathmandu Kitchen, Thai Recipes and East West Gourmet. Other food vendors include Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, The Buckhorn, Ciocolat, Farmer’s Kitchen, Davis Creamery, Fat Face, The Hotdogger, Davis Food Co-op, Original Steve’s Pizza, Upper Crust Bakery, Davis Bread & Desserts, OctoberFeast Bakery and Kettlepop.

Dinner can be washed down with beer and wine from a booth staffed by Soroptimists of Davis. All proceeds go to the service club’s local charities.

Local bands will play everything from bluegrass to big band, rockabilly to rock ‘n’ roll, Americana to Dixieland. Music usually begins at 5 p.m. and continues until dark. Sacramento singer-songwriter Lisa Phenix and mandolin and guitar player extraordinaire, Beer Dawg Steve Walls, kick off the 34-week concert season on Wednesday with their crowd-pleasing folk and Americana music. The concerts are sponsored by the Davis Food Co-op.

Children will enjoy Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing wall, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
