Eat Off the Grid with a Presidio Picnic
Every Sunday from March to October, The Presidio park in San Francisco hosts a giant picnic of sorts. A convoy of local food trucks lines up and offers creative culinary creations, drinks, and snacks from 11-4 pm Sundays. The lush, green lawn of The Presidio fills with activity, picnic blankets and music, all set before sweeping views of San Francisco Bay.
The Presidio Picnic is a choice way to spend a Sunday in San Francisco. Start the day by sampling inventive food fares in a community setting overlooking the city and bay. Crissy Field is nearby, or if you’re looking to explore the Golden Gate Bridge – or even cross it – the Presidio Picnic gets your Sunday going with live DJ music, lawn games and activities for all ages.
The weekly picnic has 25+ food trucks, music, lawn games and activities for kids. Dogs on leashes are welcome and a live DJ typically plays during the entire picnic. This year, a cultural dance performance will be held every fourth Sunday of the month.
Parking is a bit iffy, so if you’re up for an adventure, we recommend you check out Stanford Court Hotel’s bike rental program. New Albion bikes and Blix e-bikes are included in the Urban Bundle at SCH. Not only is a bike ride a great workout, it also gives you a memorable experience of sightseeing San Francisco.
Are you interested in crossing the Golden Gate Bridge after chowing down at the Presidio Picnic? Cross the bridge by foot, bike, bus or car using our guide to Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.
Off the Grid is a local catering company made up of independent food trucks offering a diverse array of foodstuffs, from fried chicken and waffles to Filipino fusion. The excellent menu options have something for everyone, whether your diet is vegan, gluten-free or vegetarian.
The Presidio Picnic runs March 8 through Oct. 21 this year. Make the most of the season with an outdoor picnic at this iconic spot.
