Presidio Trust

San Francisco’s favorite family picnic is back for its fifth season!

Presidio Picnic brings together the best of the Bay Area's international food scene with the beauty of this national park site. Held on the seven acre Main Parade Ground lawn, Presidio Picnic features food and drink from 30 local vendors. 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.

Bring a blanket, dress in layers, and enjoy an amazing day in the park. To plan your next park adventure, visit the new Presidio Visitor Center, located across from the Picnic lawn.
