The congressional picnic is an annual affair, where members of Congress and their families mingle. This year’s theme was Summer Solstice, as it fell on the first day of summer and longest day of the year. 

“Let us put politics aside and let us enjoy the company of our friends and, to some extent, our competition but that’s OK,” President Trump said during a brief remark on the White House South Lawn.

Guests were treated to lawn games, festival vendors, a popcorn cart, a candy station, and a ferris wheel. While the menu, prepped by White House Executive Chef Cristeta Comerford, offered includes lemon chicken, grilled plank salmon, charcoal grilled rib eye steak, and Baja shrimp tacos among a host other other side dishes.
