One Big Picnic
One Big Community
One Big Picnic is an annual, volunteer-led, free community meal in Glasgow’s main square. People from all walks of life, communities and backgrounds are invited to come together to enjoy delicious food, diverse entertainment, and to mix and socialise together.
Open to everyone, this free family-friendly day out celebrates the diversity of the people of Glasgow and aims to unite those from different backgrounds. We reach out to communities – particularly those who are often marginalised because of their immigration status, homelessness, religious and cultural background, disability, or sexual orientation. We invite them to come together in the heart of Glasgow – with the shoppers and passers-by – to share a delicious variety of free food and enjoy themselves together.
