Outdoor Fun with Views at Presidio Picnic

Grab your blanket and meet at the Presidio on Sundays for a family picnic like no other. Presidio Picnic features international food and drink from the best of the Bay Area food scene, lawn games, music, yoga classes, nature-based arts and crafts for kids and a photo booth at the Presidio Adventure Zone tent, plus iconic views of San Francisco Bay. Presidio Picnic is sponsored by the Presidio Trust and Off the Grid Markets.

Presidio Picnic's food vendor lineup often includes Del Popolo pizza, Jackrabbit sliders and treats, Cielito Lindo Mexicoan street food, DUM Truck Indian soul food, Hot Bird fried chicken, Senor Sisig Filipino food, and much more. Weekly vendor lineup is subject to change.

New for 2018 is a free cultural dance performance on the fourth Sunday of every month. Performances will help bring a special focus to the food and cultures of the diverse Bay Area community, with apperances by Alafia Dance Ensemble, China Dance Theatre, Manuia Review, and Ballet Folklórico México Danza among others. Check the Presidio's schedule here for the monthly lineup.

Presidio Picnic is also a great starting point for exploring other parts of the Presidio. Nearby is the new Presidio Visitor Center, where you can find tips for extending your day in the park and for future visits. You'll also find sweatshirts, picnic blankets, reusable water bottles and more for sale. Visitors can also enjoy 24 miles of trails with eight scenic overlooks; outdoor sculptures, including Wood Line by Andy Goldsworthy; the The Walt Disney Family Museum; the Presidio Officer's Club museum and cultural center; and restaurants, including The Commissary and Arguello.

Presidio Picnic is held Sundays, mid-March through early October, and is easily accessible via the free PresidiGo Shuttle or San Francisco's Muni system. Bicyclists can take advantage of a free bike valet service.

If you can't make it on a Sunday, make sure to check out the Presidio's multiple other great picnic spots.
