Good news, the Stern Grove Festival is making a roaring comeback to the City this weekend! Stern Grove has been hosting free Sunday concerts for the people of San Francisco since its formation. The Festival has been a tradition since the summer of 1938.
To celebrate the opening of the Stern Grove Festival for 2016, Janelle Monae, the soulful, Grammy nominated singer will perform for San Francisco this Sunday and best of all the concert is free! Be prepared to get there early though, you can be sure there will be a big crowd attending.
Before the concert The Big Picnic Party will take place at 11:30am. The Big Picnic Party consists of a private pre-concert party with a catered lunch. Although the tickets are quite expensive at $250, all proceeds go to running the festival annually, and if you are not in a position to pay this, don’t worry, you can still attend the concert free of charge. Tickets for the Big Picnic Party can be bought here.
The Stern Grove Festival will run from June 19-August 21 and will take place at Sigmund Stern Recreation Grove, at 19th Avenue and Sloat Boulevard. More information on the festival can be found here.
