SAN FRANCISCO – For those who missed their chance to get Outside Lands tickets, the Stern Grove Festival is still an option this weekend. The free festival, in its 78th season of providing world-class concerts and performing arts, has become a tradition. This Sunday, Morris Day and the Time will be headlining the concert, which begins at 2p.m. Festival-goers are encouraged to arrive early, as seating is first-come, first-served.
“Stern Grove Festival has provided the people of San Francisco with access to admission-free performances for nearly eight decades. But the Festival is more than admission-free concerts; it’s a community experience in a beautiful natural setting where everyone is welcome,” said Steven Haines, the Festival’s Executive Director. “There is simply nowhere else like it. Bring your friends, your family, your picnics and come out this Sunday for a great party with Morris Day and the Time and local favorite Con Brio.”
Among Stern Grove’s amenities are an amphitheater surrounded by 150 year old eucalyptus trees, and 33 acres of natural area that is a relaxing space away from the city bustle.
“The Stern Grove Festival Association is one of our most outstanding and long-term partners,” said Phil Ginsburg, General Manager of the SF Rec & Park Department. “They have been providing a service to the people of San Francisco for generations, and we’re honored that they do so in Sigmund Stern Grove.”
This show will be their second to last of the season. The final show will be held August 16 and features Talib Kweli and Zakiya Harris featuring Elephantine.
