San Francisco’s largest community picnic, the Presidio Picnic, will return for its much-anticipated ninth season beginning Sunday, March 29 and running through October 25, from 11 am – 4 pm.
The weekly picnic combines the best of the international food scene with the best of this national park. This multi-cultural experience offers a blend of culinary selections from international mobile food vendors, family-friendly games, music and special performances every third Sunday by various Bay Area community dance groups.
The city’s most sustainable picnic is accessible from downtown via the free PresidiGo shuttle.
Held on the seven acre Main Parade Ground lawn, this weekly community event features food and drink from more than 30+ international mobile food creators representing the best of San Francisco’s multicultural food scene curated by Off the Grid.
But it’s not just about the grub; visitors can enjoy an ever-changing array of free activities including yoga classes, lawn games, a Presidio photo booth, free kids bike-riding lessons from the Presidio YMCA, and nature-based arts and crafts for kids in the Presidio Adventure Zone tent.
Grab a blanket and head to your national park for Presidio Picnic. This great family event takes place on the Presidio’s beautiful Main Parade Ground, a seven-acre lawn with views of the park, the city, and the San Francisco Bay.
