What Happened to the Picnic?
As you've probably noticed, the number of SEC fans in Denver has grown exponentially over the last 10 years. This is great news, but it also makes getting the proper parks permits/insurance/security/organization extremely difficult. We spent a tremendous amount of time and effort investigating many options, and in the end, the united SEC schools decided that the best option for this year's event was to have a hosted party at an event space.
Please rest assured that we're very excited and hopeful for the quality of this year's SEC Kick-off event, and we've done everything we can to preserve the picnic environment and to keep the event family-friendly and fun for all with MORE activities and entertainment options! We look forward to having you join us!
