Experience Stern Grove's Great 2020 Summer Concert Series Virtually

Concerts at Stern Grove are a San Francisco summer tradition going back more than 80 years. Visitors and locals alike have seen legendary performances here, one of the most beautiful spots in the city, all for free.

Unfortunately, the live events won't be happening this summer, due to COVID-19. However, the Stern Grove team has partnered with KPIX-TV/Channel 5 to air terrific concerts from their archives, every Sunday through Aug. 16 at 4:30 p.m.

Extended versions, with additional performances and rare behind-the-scenes footage, will be made available each Sunday at 5 p.m. on the Stern Grove website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.

Among the performers featured are Sheila E., George Clinton, The Doobie Brothers, and Pink Martini. Each week will focus on a different theme or genre of music. Here is Stern Grove's virtual line-up of their greatest hits for 2020.
