Stern Grove Music Festival



Every day of the week has a defining mood and attitude to go along with it — a case of the Mondays, Hump Day, Thank God it’s Friday, and thanks to Drake and ILOVEMAKONNEN even Tuesday has it’s own vibe. But I’m going to argue that unlike the often stated “Sunday Funday,” Sunday is in fact not Funday. Out of all the days in the week, Sundays are filled with the most ambivalence. We wake up, we brunch, we run errands, we revel in the afterglow of Saturday Night, and then, sometime around 2 p.m. all of that comes crashing to a cold hard reality of Monday looming. We mourn the weekend, we retreat indoors, we nurse our cheap brunch champagne hangovers that are beginning to impact our bodies, we develop anxiety about work that’s to come this week — our case of the Mondays has arrived ahead of schedule. And while there’s no way to completely cure yourself of this feeling, summer in San Francisco has been providing some awesome palliative care for the past 80 years

Every year since 1938, Stern Grove Festival, an admission-free performing arts series, has been taking place a beautiful outdoor amphitheater located at 19th Avenue and Sloat Boulevard in San Francisco. This weekend WAR, of “Low Rider” fame, will be taking the stage along with Bay Area-based Malo. So bring a blanket, wine, cheese, grapes — whatever — and ease your way out of the weekend the right way.

If You Go:
When: Sunday, August 13 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: Sigmund Stern Grove
19 Ave and Sloat Blvd
San Francisco, CA
Cost: Free
