The WikNYC Picnic, the "picnic anyone can edit", was held in Central Park on Sunday July 6, 2014, as part of the Great American Wiknic celebrations being held across the USA.

See past WikNYC awesomeness at Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC/August 2007 and Wikipedia:Meetup/NYC/August 2008.

The picnicking area is the southwest section of the Great Lawn, north of the Delacorte Theater, just inside the park at Central Park West between 81st & 82nd. Enter the park at West 81st St. (Central Park map focused on Delacorte Theater - the picnic is on the grass north of this structure)

The picnic will last from 1 PM to 8 PM.

Remember it's a wiki-picnic, which means potluck.

On the morning of the Wiknic day, we also held the Wikimedia NYC chapter's annual meeting at a location near the park, from 11:30am to 12:30pm.
