Frequently Asked Questions

All bookings require participants to agree to our terms of use

Simply fill out a booking form with your choice of package, theme, preferred location, add-ons, and any extra details for your picnic. 
We will then send you an invoice with the price of your picnic. A 50% deposit (paid by e-transfer) is required to hold your requested booking***. 
The balance will be requested 7 days prior to your picnic.
We do all the set up and take down for your picnic. All you need to do is show up and enjoy!

*** If we do not receive your deposit within 24 hours, your requested booking will no longer be guaranteed.

On weekends and statutory holidays, our picnic hours run from 11 am to 9 pm.
On weekdays, our picnic hours run from 6 pm to 9 pm.
Please note that it takes an hour to set up and an hour to take down (not including travel).
If you want your picnic to start later or run longer than our posted picnic hours please contact us so we can discuss.  Additional charges may apply.
Peaks & Picnics is based out of the Tri-Cities, however, we love hosting picnics all over the Lower Mainland! Whether it is in your home or backyard, by the beach, or at a park, we want to make it the picnic set up of your dreams! If you’re stuck on location we can make some recommendations, just let us know the area(s) you’re interested in having it. 
 Delivery is free within a 15 km radius of Coquitlam city centre, however, locations outside that radius are subject to travel fees. See below for zone fees:

Absolutely! While we offer food options as add-ons our base picnic packages purposefully exclude food to give you the option of bringing your favourite foods.


We have paired up with other local small businesses to provide you and your guests delicious food add-ons. Whether you and your party want individual charcuterie boxes or larger shared grazing boards, our vendors will be able to accommodate both options.
When you make your booking please provide details of any food allergies or specific dietary requests in the “additional comments” section, and we will forward that information to our vendor. A small fee may be incurred for substitutions.

Unfortunately, we do not serve alcohol at this time. The consumption of alcohol is prohibited in most public parks in the Lower Mainland. Currently, the only cities where alcohol consumption is allowed in parks are North Vancouver and Port Coquitlam. You may consume alcohol, at your discretion, only at approved locations. Approved locations are listed below:

You can cancel your booking with a full refund up to 14 days before your picnic. After this period we do not offer refunds. 
However, we allow you to reschedule your picnic up to 7 days before your picnic. This is so our food vendors and other local partners can avoid loss of product and time and also allows them to make other arrangements.
If you wish to reschedule, it must be on a date within 3 months of your original booking date (subject to availability). 
As Vancouverites, we know that the weather can change unexpectedly! For this reason, we have a 10′ x 10′ waterproof gazebo that we can provide to you free of charge in the event that the forecast shows a chance of rain.
Additionally, we request that all bookings have a backup location either indoors or under shelter where we can set up in the case of poor weather on the day of your picnic. 
If you decide you would rather not have your picnic, please see our cancellation policy listed above.
We take the health and safety of our guests and our community very seriously. As such we will take several measures including:
  • Set-up and take down will be conducted with gloves and masks.
  • Sanitizer will be included in your picnic setup.
  • All picnic items will be thoroughly sanitized between events.

You are responsible for all equipment provided by Peaks & Picnics during your picnic booking time. Please do not leave the picnic unattended to avoid theft or damage by third parties. If you wish to leave early please contact us and we will return to clean up as soon as we can. We ask that you wait for our staff to return for takedown before leaving the picnic setup.


We cannot extend the allotted booking time for your group. If you arrive late you will be able to use the picnic for the remainder of the time that you are booked for. Depending on our schedule and any subsequent bookings in the day, there is a possibility of adding an extra hour for $75.

For indoor picnics we require an ample amount of furniture-free space to set up. For bookings of 2-4 people we need a space of roughly 8’ x 8’. For groups of 5-6 we need a space roughly of 10’ x 10’. For larger groups please contact us. 

It is necessary to have all furniture moved prior to our arrival, otherwise an additional fee will be incurred (from your damage deposit), and may cut into your allotted picnic time. 

Peaks & Picnics takes a refundable damage deposit of $100 for each booking in case of damage, loss, or theft during a picnic. During your picnic, you are responsible for all of the items provided. In the case of damage, loss, or theft, the value of replacing, repairing, or deep cleaning will be deducted from the amount.
The damage deposit will be returned in full within 48 hours of the end of the event if no damage or loss has been incurred on used equipment and no deep cleaning is required for any of the equipment.
If the damage of loss supersedes the deposit, you will additionally be charged with the full retail cost of the item(s) in question.
Please let us know 7 days before your picnic if you would like to change your package, theme, add-ons, or number of guests so we can make the proper arrangements.
If you choose to remove an add-on, lower your guest list, or opt for a package lower than the originally paid amount, we will not provide a refund. 
Please note that all add-ons are subject to availability.
Additional hour add-ons are subject to availability. If we do not have any other picnics booked that day we may be able to accommodate adding additional hour(s). 
Adding an hour is $75, which we request to be paid via e-transfer within 24 hours of your picnic. 
If we have a second picnic booked that day we, unfortunately, cannot provide additional time outside your allotted 2 hours.
