At a glance: National Pepper Pod Picnic Day


Saturday, 9 June 2023


Ottawa/Gatineau and locations across Canada

What's included?

Pepper Pod Picnic Kit for tribes outside Ottawa/Gatineau



The Pepper Pod community spans across Canada with Lifeshop™ 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 Lifeshop™ tribe for a picnic on Sunday, June 9th 2024—a date that will go down in history as the second 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 sponsor for our event. Thanks to Versatil Inc., every Lifeshop™ tribe will get a Pepper Pod Picnic Kit, complete with plates, napkins, forks for your feast.

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

How to Join the Fun!

For Lifeshop™ 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 Lifeshop™ tribe to join you.

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

On 9 June, be sure to take photos, tell tales and share them with us! We’ll post photos of Lifeshop™ tribes all across the country on our Facebook and Instagram feeds!

For Everyone in the Ottawa/ Gatineau Region

The Pepper Pod team invites everybody in the Ottawa/Gatineau area to join us at Lac Leamy at 11:00 am on Sunday, June 9th 2024. Haven’t done a Lifeshop™ yet? No problem!

We’ll be in the same place as last year, near the Lac Leamy picnic pavilion. Look for the Pepper Pod van and 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.)
