In celebration of opening day of the 75th Season, Stern Grove Festival proudly presented The Big Picnic!

The Big Picnic featured a private catered fundraising event in the West Meadow to benefit Stern Grove Festival, followed by an admission-free concert, open to the public.

Glide Ensemble kicked off the concert with an inspiring blend of gospel, jazz, blues, pop and soul. The Family Stone, featuring Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees and original founding members of Sly & The Family Stone, Cynthia Robinson, Jerry Martini, and Greg Errico, took over with their funk-infused sound.

And to close the day, Stern Grove Festival proudy presented ANITA BAKER. A multiple GRAMMY winner, composer, producer, and all-around superstar, this R&B legend is known for her hit-making sound and smooth vocals.

This performance was dedicated to the memory of Rosalie M. Stern, donor of Sigmund Stern Grove to the people of San Francisco and founder of the Stern Grove Festival Association.
