Free Music And Summer Fun In The Sun

One of the great things about living in the Bay Area is the weather. What better way to enjoy the summer weather than by listening to music outdoors? Do I have just the thing for you, and best of all it’s free!

Every year for the last 74 years Stern Grove has been providing admission free events to Bay Area residents and visitors. There are musical events to enjoy as well as outreach programs and Kids Days art and educational programs.

For more information take a look at the Stern Grove website.

Check out the events’ season opener Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings performing James Brown’s “It’s a Man’s World.“
