Join us each Spring in the West Valley and Fall in the East Valley as autism families of all ages and stages of life come together for support, food and fun.

Annual Fall Family Autism Picnic

Saturday, 11/17/18, 10AM - 1PM

McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park 7301 E. Indian Bend Road Scottsdale, 85250 Directions

Come enjoy one of our favorite traditions – our Free annual family picnic! Look for our signs when arriving at the park and follow them to our ramada! Bring a dish to share according to last name and come join with other families as we enjoy eating and having fun together!

  • Last Name A-M: Side dish. Please do not bring chips but veggies, fruits, etc.
  • Last Name N-Z: Dessert

The Autism Society will be providing the hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, condiments, and paper products. We encourage you to bring a GFCF or special diet to share if your family follows one! Please label your dish. There will be a bounce house, food, face painting, games, balloons, pinatas, fun, and more!

Please RSVP by Thursday, 11/15/18 so we know how much food to buy.
