The Big Picnic is a fundraising event benefiting Stern Grove Festival and its mission to present admission-free concerts and outreach programs to people of the Bay Area.
PLEASE NOTE: The Big Picnic Concert featuring the Isley Brothers is admission-free and open to the public. Seating in the concert meadow is first-come, first-served.
A special reason to celebrate and support this year!
In recognition of his dedicated stewardship and guidance for the past 24 years, join us in celebrating the many contributions of Dr. Douglas E. Goldman, our CEO and the Chairman of our Board, who will step down at the end of this season. Under his leadership, the Festival has modernized in many ways, including a stunning $15 Million renovation to The Grove in 2005.
As we look forward to Doug’s son Matthew Goldman taking over as our next Chairman in 2020 – the fifth generation of his family to serve in that role - we will celebrate and thank Doug for his years of service and support of Stern Grove Festival. Please consider making an additional donation to acknowledge his legacy.
