Nestled in the middle of a eucalyptus forest, this Golden Gate Park meadow transforms into a secluded concert venue every summer. The 81st Stern Grove season commences with the Big Picnic, a combination fund-raiser, party and catered lunch. Later in the evening, you can stroll over with your own spread to lap up the sun amid performances by R&B legends Jeffrey Osborne and Peabo Bryson. The concerts continue through the season with appearances from the San Francisco Symphony, SF Ballet and popular musicians (Rufus Wainwright and Stevie Wonder have headlined in the past).
