Every summer, the Stern Grove Festival Association provides visitors and locals of the Bay Area with free access to various traditional performing acts. The Festival takes place in Sigmund Stern Grove, a eucalyptus-wooded outdoor amphitheatre.
Numerous concerts have been held here since 1938 and it is an excellent way to catch a music wave on Sunday. The legendary performances are from local institutions and top touring acts such as the San Francisco Ballet who display new material as well as traditional picks. All you need to do is to arrive early, grab the best spot, and enjoy the atmosphere at its finest.
