Take in the stunning grace and beauty of one of the world's premiere ballet companies in the equally stunning setting of Stern Grove. Pack a picnic, grab a friend, and prepare to be dazzled.
"There is no public parking at Stern Grove, and street parking is limited. Avoid driving, and take the Muni M or K line to the St. Francis Circle Stop.
Check out more public transportation options here."
"Parking and seating can be a pain to find so get there early and bring a blanket or something to sit on in case the ground is damp.
Totally worth it - and one of my favorite things to do in the summer."
"Turn your day into a picnic and bring some snacks and/or wine."
Founded in 1933, the SF Ballet is the oldest professional ballet company in America, and has emerged as a world-class company. From its earliest performance of Coppélia (1939), to the first American full-length production of Swan Lake (1940), to its magical modern-day performances, the SF Ballet has always been a can't-miss attraction.
About the Stern Grove Festival: every year since 1938, Sigmund Stern Grove -- a beautiful outdoor amphitheater at 19th and Sloat -- has been site of SF's free summer-long performing arts series.
