Experience world-class symphony, opera, dance, world music and more in an unparalleled outdoor setting. The newly renovated concert meadow is best known as the home of the Stern Grove Festival, a beloved San Francisco institution that presents free cultural performances every summer. Come early, bring a picnic and relax on the groomed lawn amid eucalyptus and pine groves.
There’s more than music on the menu: historic Stern Grove is a full outdoor recreation complex with athletic fields, courts, a children’s playground and dog play area. Play tennis or croquet, pitch horseshoes or toss a Frisbee. Walk or jog around Pine Lake, or reserve Trocadero House for private events.
