Picnics on the Lawn

Enjoy a delicious picnic meal while experiencing an orchestra performance at Whittington-Pfohl Auditorium (WPA).

Picnics can be pre-ordered for your convenience or you can simply visit our main concession venue at WPA. Pre-orders are available through the BMC box office at least 24 hours in advance by calling (828) 862-2105, or purchased online with your performance tickets.

An assortment of beverages are also available for your enjoyment, including Rodney Strong Vineyards red and white wines by the glass, Oskar Blues craft beer, Pepsi products, bottled water, and coffee.

WPA concessions are located on the box office plaza tented area (beverages and snacks only) and the full-service main concession building on the house-left lawn. Concessions are open one hour prior to each performance.

Please note: Pre-order concessions are not available for August 19th, but grill options will be available onsite.
