Coming Up: Stern Grove Festival in San Francisco

My favorite summer outdoor concert series is coming up! Here is the Stern Grove schedule. Put it on the calendar!

June 14 - the Doobie Brothers and the California Honeydrops
June 21 - Pacific Mambo Orchestra with Sheila E. and Marlow Rosado, and also Salsamania
June 28 - Randy Newmand and Hot Club of San Francisco
July 5 - San Francisco Symphony, Edwin Outwater, Conductor
July 12 - Amy Hanaiali'i and the Stern Grove Festival Orchestra, Halau 'o Keikiali'i
July 19 - tUnE-yArDs (try typing that - it's not easy!) and DakhaBrakha
July 26 - San Francisco Ballet, with Helgi Tomasson, Artistic Director
August 2 - Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bhi Bhiman
August 9 - Morris Day and the Time, Con Brio
August 16 - Talib Kweli, Zakiya Harris featuring Elephantine

While the concerts start at 2 (and run 2.5-3 hours), they have KidStage from 11:30-1 before each concert (except June 14). Kids can do hands-on art projects in the West meadow. Artists will be teaching workshops on making art with nature, and there will also be an instrument exploration area and dance workshop. It's free.

We did a guide to taking kids to Stern Grove last year, here.
