Robson Street Takes a Bite Out of Summer with Pop-Up Picnic

Robson Street Takes a Bite Out of Summer with Pop-Up Picnic

Through July and August, Robson Street is hosting Pop-Up Picnic, a fun and delicious promotion to get people outside to enjoy the sun, fresh air and great food.

Pop-Up Picnic features eight Robson Street restaurants that have put together quick, tasty and well-priced menu options for people to choose from, including sushi, tacos, burgers, salads and more. Every picnic lunch includes a free Robson tumbler, while supplies last. Participating restaurants include ABODE, AllStar Wings & Ribs, Cactus Club, Café Crepe, Earls, Ebisu, Milestones and Steamrollers. And if you’re looking for a spot to dine outside, check out Urban Pasture in front of Café Crepe, Urban Reef at 800 block Robson, or the newly created Pop-Up Picnic area at 1100 Robson. Detailed menus can be found at

“Pop-Up Picnic embraces the best aspects of summer: fresh air, sun, relaxation, and indulging in great food and people watching,” says Teri Smith, Executive Director of the Robson Street Business Association, “and where better to enjoy them then on Robson Street.”

Robson Street Business Association is a non-profit organization that works to promote and enhance the economic development of the approximately 200 commercial businesses and properties along Robson Street between Burrard and Jervis.
