Presidio Twilight is back for its sixth season, and it's better than ever! ​This year, San Francisco's largest campfire features a delicious selection of international cuisine from a stellar lineup of local vendors (see below for a partial list). New this year are lantern-lit communal lawn domes (available to all on a first-come, first-served basis) that offer park visitors a cozy place to enjoy a meal, and bring added comfort to the event's unique "picnic at dusk" atmosphere. This event is a great way to kick off your weekend – so grab your blanket, bundle up, and enjoy fire-pits on the lawn, yoga at dusk, live music under the stars, and the Presidio's unbeatable views. Presidio Twilight is presented by the Presidio Trust in partnership with Off the Grid Markets.

Presidio Twilight’s Food Vendors (subject to change)

Not to be missed is Presidio Twilight's 2019 lineup of the best Bay Area mobile food creators including deaf-owned authentic neapolitan-style pizza purveyor Mozzeria, artisanal empanada maker El Porteno, and warming Asian noodle specialist Sip n' Slurp. Presidio Twilight will feature 8-10 rotating mobile food offerings every Thursday.​ For a schedule of mobile food creators at Twilight, visit offthegrid.com​.​

Sustainability Efforts

Presidio Twilight is hosted with sustainability in mind. All containers provided by food vendors are compostable, no plastic straws or water bottles are sold, and participants are encouraged to follow the "leave no trace" ethos – including accessing the park without a car. Try our free natural gas PresidiGo Downtown Shuttle, or take MUNI 43 right to the event. And with 24 miles of trails and bikeways, there are plenty of alternative ways to get to the park. Visit our Transportation page for more details.
