The Best Concerts Are Free

We went to the Stern Grove Festival today and I can't believe that it took us 3 years in San Francisco to even hear about these events!

The venue for these concerts is a deep valley in a park in the south-western part of San Francisco and the stage area is surrounded by huge redwoods and eucalyptus trees. It's a beautiful setting for these concerts and even better - it's free!


Today we saw the Afro Celt Sound System and it was a transcending experience to hear their world music (in the truest sense) with the kind of multicultural crowd that only San Francisco can produce. All of this under the bluest sky with the smell of eucalyptus everywhere...
