San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department - Stern Grove
The Stern Grove Festival Association is an independent, non-profit arts presenting organization that was founded in 1938 by San Francisco civic activist and arts patron Rosalie M. Stern. Today Stern Grove, a natural amphitheater surrounded by giant eucalyptus, redwood, and fir trees, is one of Northern California's favorite concert sites. In keeping with Mrs. Stern's vision, the wide selection of performers reflects the Festival's commitment to exceptional programming and to serving diverse audiences. A beloved Bay Area tradition, every summer Sunday for nearly seven decades, family and friends gather to relax, picnic, and enjoy performances by some of the world's greatest artists in this glorious natural setting.
