Stern Grove Festival is Your Festival. In 2012 you celebrated the Festival’s 75th Season and a legacy of world-class performances in an unparalleled natural setting. We hope you were among the more than 90,000 audience members who enjoyed memorable moments and captivating performances all season long. From the Festival’s new opening day party, The Big Picnic, all the way to the final concert with OK Go, 10,000 people, and a beautiful summer’s day, the 75th Season was a remarkable success and a true celebration of our vibrant community. Beyond the stage, this year the Festival also expanded its Youth Arts outreach programs to reach more audiences of tomorrow with interactive and engaging education programs. Looking forward, we are creating even more new Youth Arts programs to serve a broader constituency. From its very beginnings, Stern Grove Festival has always been for the community, and made possible by the community. The support of donors, members, sponsors, foundations, volunteers and our city make each summer season possible. On behalf of the entire staff and board, thank you for playing your part to keep this unique community tradition thriving. Sincerely,
Steven P. Haines Executive Director
“San Francisco has long served as a bastion of creativity, community, and artistic excellence, and for 75 years, Stern Grove Festival has reflected the best of that tradition – bringing the beauty of the arts and music to our entire city in a public venue, free of charge.” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi

In Your Words
“A ballet performance during which our three-year-old granddaughter danced in the meadow.” Barbara and John Barr
“I’ve been going to the Stern Grove since I moved to San Francisco five years ago. Both of my kids learned to walk while playing the grass in the meadow. Stern Grove Festival is a tradition in our family.” Stacey Oyler via Facebook
“Dancing the merengue with my 10-year-old daughter up in the trees when you opened the season with a Cuban band!” Milly Mohr
“My parents used to bring me as a small child and swing me in the blanket we sat on.”
“The SF Symphony performance of Beethoven’s 9th will rank among my most treasured Stern Grove memories.” Zak Majik via Facebook
“I started to attend the Stern Grove Festival when my older daughter was four years old. Now she is 47 and we continue to attend the concerts with grandchildren, family, and lots of friends. We have good memories throughout all these years.” Carlos L. Canier
“Our 3-year-old daughter dancing ballet, our 2-year-old son singing Opera in the car on the way home. We love the Grove and drag our two kids here every weekend.”
“My favorite Stern Grove moment was bringing my daughter for the first time. My husband and I came to the concerts when we were dating, when we were engaged, when we were married, when we were pregnant, and for our daughter’s baby shower. Bringing her for the first time was very special.” Jeanene Hegeman via Facebook
“I loved the Family Stone show so much I ended up proposing to my girlfriend right afterwards on the lawn!” S.Rabinowitz via Facebook
