Like a mini Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in the gorgeous Dahlia Dell

Bring a blanket (and an instrument if you like) or just kick back and watch some of the Bay Area’s top bluegrass, country and folk performers as they get together for an impromptu concert jam.

Pickin’ Picnic in Golden Gate Park
Saturday, May 2, 2015 | Noon to 6 pm
Dahlia Picnic Area, Golden Gate Park

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 in 2015 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 sponsored by the California Bluegrass Association and is open to all who play or like to listen to bluegrass music.
