The Alabama Greek Picnic is a highly anticipated summer event designed to provide Alabama members of the Pan-Hellenic Council a unique experience to unite, fellowship, and network in a central location. Our goal is to raise money to support scholarship opportunities and the charitable efforts of the Alabama Greek Foundation. The Alabama Greek Picnic will provide Divine 9 members and their guests a weekend full of events, including a major service project, day party, family fun, stroll competition, nightlife entertainment, and worship. Although staged in the beautiful state of Alabama, this event is sure to become a favorite amongst members of all Black Greek Lettered Organizations from across the nation.
