The Port of San Diego is postponing Picnic in the Park, originally scheduled for Sunday, March 29, 2020 at Pepper Park in National City from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The decision comes out of an abundance of caution and in following guidance by the California Department of Public Health to avoid gatherings of more than 250 people to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
At the appropriate time, the Port will reschedule and announce a new date. The Port thanks its partners at the City of National City, Fern Street Circus and SACRA/PROFANA and looks forward to holding the community event in the future.
