Presidio Picnic Returns for 2016 Season

Sundays: April 3 to October 9, 2016
11 am to 4 pm on the Main Parade Ground
Get to the Presidio on the free Downtown Shuttle OR Public Transit

Grab your blanket and meet at the Presidio for San Francisco's favorite Sunday gathering. Presidio Picnic, back for its fourth season, has become a "go to" destination for foodies, families, and friends looking to chill in the great outdoors.

Sponsored by the Presidio Trust and Off the Grid, Presidio Picnic features food and drink from 34 local vendors (see below for a partial list), lawn games, music, and "blow your mind" views of San Francisco Bay.

But it's not just about the grub. You can also take a yoga class; snap a selfie in the photo booth; drop in to the "Roving Ranger" a mobile park visitor center with information about Presidio wildlife and free stickers and animal tattoos for the kiddos; or let the little ones enjoy nature-based arts and crafts led by park staff. The Presidio YMCA will also be on site once a month with their free Y Bike "Learn to Ride" program.

Three retail tents will be on-hand: Yerena Farms brings delicious fruits and produce, Happy Moose Juice offers cold-pressed juices and nut milks, and Nosh This provides an array of inventive chocolates. Off the Grid's Mobile Retail Marketplace will also offer inventive apparel highlighting the Bay Area's foodie culture.

Make a Day in the Presidio

Use Presidio Picnic as a starting point for adventures in the park – explore 24 miles of hiking trails, eight scenic overlooks, art by Andy Goldsworthy, the Walt Disney Family Museum, the Presidio Officers' Club, as well as neighboring restaurants, including The Commissary and Arguello.
