We hold an Annual Colorado Yoopers Picnic every fall. 2024 will be the 24th Anniversary for our group picnic! All Yoopers and “wannabees” are welcome. Join us to meet fellow Yoopers, buy more of those delicious pasties, and support U.P. charities!

The 2024 picnic will be held at noon on Sept. 22 at Carl Johnson’s office, 12640 W. Cedar Drive, Lakewood, CO 80228. Please start saving treasures for the donation table, and no doubt Carl will have plenty of frozen pasties available.

Join our email list by sending your email address to [email protected] to keep updated with the details of the picnic.
