Education & Outreach

Explore Music and More

Each year, Stern Grove Festival’s admission-free education and outreach programs provide enriching opportunities for thousands of Bay Area children and adults.

Designed to inform, engage, and inspire, these programs create a meaningful, personal connection to the arts.


Kids Days

Stern Grove Festival's Kids Days are FREE interactive arts education programs for children ages 4-11.

Kids Days are open to the public and admission-free, but advance registration is required. Children must be accompanied by an adult guardian (no drop-offs).

The 2018 season of Kids Days has ended. Sign up for our email list and look for next summer's schedule in 2019.


Kids Camp

In 2018, Stern Grove Festival presented three Kids Camps in Residence.

Kids Camps were provided free to children participating in the summer programs at these locations.

Local teaching artists presented hands-on, interactive workshops exploring hip-hop music, dance and spoken word, and Puerto Rican Bomba music.




From 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. before every Sunday concert, kids of all ages can experience hands-on art projects, a musical instrument exploration station, and dance workshops with local teaching artists at KidStage in the West Meadow.

The line-up of KidStage events in 2019 will be announced with the 82nd Season.


Artist Talks

Informative pre-concert Artist Talks take place with featured Festival artists at the Grove’s Trocadero Clubhouse on select concert Sundays.

Artist Talks for 2019 will be announced with the 82nd Season line-up.
