Posh Picnic is an annual fundraising event organized by the Coxhall Guild at Cripe Pavilion at Coxhall Gardens. Guests are invited to bring their favorite people, culinary delights, and table settings to create a night of magic in Carmel's most beautiful picnic spot! 

The evening features a tablescape challenge, with prizes awarded for "Most Posh", "Most Creative", "Most Coxhall-Like", and "People's Choice". Guests provide their own refreshments and tableware for a highly personalized, stylish experience.

Dancing under the stars follows for an unforgettable evening!
