It must be summertime! San Francisco’s annual Stern Grove Festival kicked off its 76th season yesterday afternoon with “The Big Picnic” – a celebratory benefit concert and luncheon supporting the Stern Grove Festival Association. Overjoyed to be a part of the outdoor music-filled event, we served up summer-ready dishes to over 400 guests such as our house-made Sun Dried Tomato and Goat Cheese Deep Dish Quiches, Poached Salmon with “Dill Mousseline” and Blueberry Caulfoutti with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. The sun was shining as Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs headlined the event in support of Stern Grove’s mission of providing admission-free performing art shows throughout the Bay Area.
With many great artists on the Stern Grove’s 2013 line up – including Ramsey Lewis and Dee Dee Bridgewater, the San Francisco Symphony and Pink Martini, to name just a few – don’t let the summer pass you by without checking out a concert. The Stern Grove Festival takes place every Sunday through August 18 at 2:00pm, but be sure to get there early to snag yourself a good seat!
