Each Sunday throughout the summer, Sigmund Stern Grove Park, located at 19th Avenue and Sloat Blvd. in the Sunset District, comes alive with a series of free concerts. Featuring renowned music and dance groups and set in a beautiful outdoor amphitheater, this year’s festival kicks off on June 16 with the annual “Big Picnic” and performances by legendary musicians Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs.
