To align with guidance from public health agencies, we’re canceling the 2021 season of Presidio Picnic and Presidio Twilight. We’re now planning for how we can safely come together in the near future to celebrate the food and culture of the San Francisco Bay Area and the beauty of the Presidio.

Stay connected with Presidio news by visiting www.presidio.gov or joining our mailing list.

We also invite you to view Off the Grid creators who are offering takeout and/or delivery options in the Bay Area.
