Guests then go outside for a picnic supper featuring the food of Bon Appetit catering. The mall is filled with celebrating musicians and music lovers. Blankets and chairs and tables are provided; some guests bring their own lawn chairs and tables - and some celebrate with flowers and candelabra!

At 8:00 PM the feature concert begins in the Damian Center. The menu for the supper basket as well as the musical presentations are different for each of the three evenings of the Festival.
