PCA CHS Family Picnic

Patapsco Valley Park-Avalon 104

About this event

Are you looking for a way to spend time with your Porsche Club friends and your family? This event is for you! A picnic is a fun way to introduce your kids to the club and meet other Porsche nuts. There will be plenty of things to do with your littles and big kids all while enjoying other Porsche club friends. Of course the picnic is open to all members regardless of if you bring kids or not.

This is a first time event and we hope to have more in the future!
