Picnic food truck and team

For a little over a year, the young and enthusiastic team of Picnic from Zadar has been traveling around Croatia on wheels making finger-licking street food.

The Picnic mingle&fun story is a story about the realisation of the dreams of two young men. Vedran Božičev and Ivan Karačić, after many years of working in large catering systems, decided to start their own story.

The world of catering is one in which they feel good, and they can apply everything they have learned so far in their business. For them, the street concept successfully combines attractive snacks, entertainment and good music.

Creative artists from the collective Kalan and Propet (A most unusual garden) have taken care of the decoration of their little house, and in cooperation with Kofer, they are preparing an interactive game for visitors, which will become a great Christmas present.

So put on a warm jacket & good vibes and make your way to Strossmayer Square, and when you get there look for a big board to write Christmas wishes and take a selfie with the giant creature.

Food and drinks are very important for a good mood, so Picnic will arrive with Blackie – the best debutant at this year’s Zagreb Burger Festival, which was its fourth award.
