Pickin’ Picnic in Golden Gate Park
Saturday, May 5, 2018 | Noon to 6 pm
Dahlia Picnic Area, Golden Gate Park
FREE

There’ll be some food to share. Guests are encouraged to bring a dish, beverages, and a jug of water. Your hosts will bring plates, cups, and utensils. Please note, they won’t be bringing a grill because it’s no longer allowed in the Dahlia Dell.

The grove is near the statue of President Garfield on JFK Drive. Look for signs directing you to the Bluegrass Pickin’ Picnic and keep your ear cocked for the sound of banjos, fiddles, and guitars, along with various high lonesome vocal stylings. There’s plenty of room to spread out and have several jams. Bring your instruments, friends, and family. Chairs or blankets to sit on will be handy too.

This event is open to all who play or like to listen to bluegrass music.
