Utica Picnic 2020 Details
Ham Sale Information Coming Soon!
2020 will be known for many years to come as the year of COVID-19. As Americans. due to the Pandemic we have learned to live with constant disruption this year. Our annual picnic is no different. Out of an abundance of caution, our Picnic Committee has made the painful decision to cancel this year's Picnic. Please stay tuned for more information related to a potential Country Ham / Country Ham Sandwich Sale.
Make sure to mark your calendars for August 21, 2021 for next year's picnic.
Since approximately 1846, the 3rd Saturday of August has been set aside for the Annual Utica Picnic. The picnic has undergone many changes over the years, but it continues to be an important annual event in northern Frederick County sponsored by St. Paul's Church of Utica through our Utica Sunday School.
Today, it is a place for people to gather, to be entertained and to enjoy good food (the best Country Ham around) and company in the pleasant surroundings of our Picnic Woods. It is also an important fund-raiser for our church. A full picnic meal for an adult will cost $20.00. There will be ice cream, baked goods, and light fare to purchase.
Youth, young adults and adults of all ages volunteer in many ways to make the Picnic happen and be successful.
