Presidio Twilight is back for its fifth 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). This event is a great way to kick off your weekend – so grab your blanket, bundle up, and enjoy fire-pits on the lawn, lantern-lit cabanas, 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.
