Annual Picnic

Picnic food

The Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Colorado are excited to host our annual picnic during this year's Peace Corps Connect conference on Sunday, August 6, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on the campus green at the University of Denver. This event is always such a wonderful get together for our local Peace Corps community that we wanted to share it with all conference attendees.

The picnic and partner exhibition are included in the price of registration for the conference. However, if you can only attend the picnic, you can purchase your ticket here for $30. Children under 18 are free and don't need to register. We hope to see you there!

This year, the "picnic" includes a catered meal, with seating under the big tent, non-alcoholic beverages, and an opportunity to enjoy our partner exhibition that will close out the conference. No need to bring anything for a potluck! You'll get to enjoy:

  • Delicious food prepared from recipes from our Peace Corps Cookbook, featuring recipes from local Colorado RPCVs. This includes:
      • Tunisian salad, with apple, cucumber and green pepper
      • West African tabbouleh salad
      • Brazilian tropical fruit salad
      • West African chicken tandoori
      • Indian vegetarian curry
      • Costa Rican red beans, rice and tortillas
      • Syrian pita bread
      • Jamaican pineapple upside-down cake
      • Syrian baklava

  • Check out exhibitors from local and national universities, representatives from many different NPCA affiliate groups, staff from Peace Corps Response, and more! Find the full list of participants under "Exhibitors" here
  • RPCVs of Colorado merchandise as well as merchandise from other RPCV groups will be on sale too!

Online registration is closed, but you can pay at the "door" with either cash or credit card.

NOTE: DUE TO UNCERTAIN WEATHER, THE PICNIC AND PARTNER EXHIBITION HAS BEEN MOVED INTO THE DRISCOLL StUDENT CENTER.

Due to the uniqueness of this special event, we will not be able to refund any tickets purchased.
