National Pepper Pod Picnic Day

Sunday, June 11, 2023, 11:00 am
Lac Leamy, Gatineau

Sponsored by Versatil


The Pepper Pod community spans across Canada with tribes located in many provinces. Although the physical Pepper Pod building is located in Chelsea, our hearts are with all of our grads and we’d love to get together again!

Wherever you are, gather your tribe for a picnic on Sunday, 11 June 2023—a date that will go down in history as the first ever National Pepper Pod Picnic Day! A huge shout out to Ann Arsenault, from the Cheeky Peppers, who suggested the awesome idea of a giant picnic. 

Pepper Pod Picnic Kit

We’re so grateful to our incredible sponsors for our first-ever event. Thanks to Versatil, every tribe will get a Pepper Pod Picnic Kit, complete with plates, napkins, forks and a $100 gift card to go toward your feast. 

The kit will also include a banner with sponsor logos, and so please thank Versatil by taking lots and lots of photos with the banner!

How to Join the Fun

For Tribes Across Canada
Find a nice park, field, backyard, dock, treehouse, any perfect place for a picnic and collect your peeps. Consider sharing the love and inviting a nearby tribe to join you.

For every remote tribe, please have one representative register for the picnic so we can send you the picnic kit.

On 11 June, be sure to take photos, tell tales and share them with us! We’ll post photos of tribes all across the country on our Facebook and Instagram feeds!

For Tribes in the Ottawa/Gatineau Region  
The Pepper Pod team invites everybody in the Ottawa/Gatineau region to join us at Lac Leamy at 11:00 am on Sunday, 11 June 2023. Look for the Pepper Pod flag!

The picnic is free to attend, and we ask that you register in advance to help with planning. Please bring a dish to share, and talk amongst yourselves to avoid being buried in potato salad! (Unless, of course, you like that sort of thing.)


I have added to my tribe. I am able to see more possibilities. My cup is full of love as I leave here. This weekend granted me the gift of simply being present, being me. Filled with gratitude...thank you. – S
