A French-themed picnic under the stars will feature chef-inspired artisanal meats, cheeses, and flatbreads. Take your experience further by enjoying wine pairings, chosen to enhance your meal and be the perfect complement to a night under the stars. All picnic baskets include tablecloth, plates, utensils and wine glasses (for baskets with wine) and serves two people.

As darkness falls, view the stars and planets through your own telescope or one provided by the Naperville Astronomical Association (NAA), Chicago Astronomical Society (CAS), and the Northwest Suburban Astronomers. If the sky is clear, this will be an ideal night to witness the beautiful night sky. Inside the Visitors Center, NAA will give a presentation about constellations at 7:30 pm. Theater seating is limited and first come, first serve.
