This year's 2013 San Diego County Wiknic will be held in Poway, next to the train park, and artist center. This event will be co-attended by people from the San Diego County area. Poway is a central location and offers fun for the family including kids. May crosspollination of ideas and merriment abound!

    • Street parking abounds
    • Farmer's Market in morning next to Old Poway Park - The Poway Farmer's market is Saturdays 8:30 - 11:30.
    • Directions:
