    Free Range Fridays Bluegrass Pride!

    7:00 PM-9:30 PM

    This show is gonna be a doozy. We’re heading for the hills – the bluegrass hills, that is – with an all-bluegrass lineup on a mission to raise funds for a great cause.

    Free Range Fridays
    Hosted by Jeanie and Chuck
    La Promenade Cafe
    3643 Balboa Street @ 38th Avenue, San Francisco
    7 to 9:30 pm
    Free/all ages welcome

    With Jeanie and Chuck - http://www.countryroundupsf.com/
    Redwood Rodeo - https://www.facebook.com/redwoodrodeo/
    35 Years of Trouble - https://www.35yearsoftrouble.com/
    The Bluegrass Freedom Band - an all-star band featuring Hailey Pexton, Karen and Mike Wilhoyt, Larry Cohea, and former Bluegrass Boy Blaine Sprouse.

    The show is free, but we’ll be working the tip jar like you’ve never seen. All proceeds go to underwrite the cost of the California Bluegrass Association’s Bluegrass Pride Parade float. Yes! For the very first time, the twanging of banjos and crying of fiddles will be echoing down Market Street in front of the biggest single-day crowd in San Francisco.

    This event is a watershed moment in California Bluegrass history. The CBA is reaching out to new audiences to help the organization grow and flourish, and the Pride Parade is hopefully just the first of many such endeavors to get out the bluegrass word.

    Bluegrass Pickin' Picnic in the Park

    12:00-6:00 PM

    Dahlia Dell Picnic Area, Golden Gate Park

    P1030043 IMG_8850 It’s time for the Umpteenth* Annual Bluegrass Pickin’ Picnic in Golden Gate Park, sponsored by the California Bluegrass Association. Jeanie and Chuck are your hosts.

    It’s a great chance for us city dwellers to get outside, get some fresh air, and enjoy an afternoon of music, good food, and good company. It’s a treat, whether you’re a jammer or just someone who wants to enjoy live, acoustic music on a lovely day in the park. It’s also a great reason for out-of-towners to plan a trip to San Francisco.

    Your hosts will bring some food, plates, cups, and utensils to share. Guests are encouraged to bring a dish, beverages, and a jug of water. We won't be bringing a grill because it's no longer allowed in the Dahlia Dell.

    The grove is near the statue of President Garfield on JFK Drive. Look for signs directing you to the Bluegrass Pickin’ Picnic and keep your ear cocked for the sound of banjos, fiddles, and guitars, along with those piercing, nasal vocal stylings. There's plenty of room to spread out and have several jams. Bring your instruments, friends, and family. Chairs or blankets to sit on will be handy too.

    DIRECTIONS BY MUNI: Take the 5, 21, or 33 and get off at Fulton and Stanyan. Take the footpath that starts at Fulton and Stanyan, cross Conservatory Drive East, and follow the path downhill. Turn right at the bottom of the hill, and the Dahlia Dell Area will be on the left.

    DIRECTIONS BY CAR: Enter the park from Fell Street and keep to the right to stay on JFK Drive. Make a right at the first stop sign onto Conservatory Drive East. Follow the curve to the top of the hill and park anywhere along the road. Take the path on the left that goes downhill. At the bottom of the hill turn right and the Dahlia Dell Picnic Area will be on the left.

    Or you can take the second right off of JFK Drive when you see the “Dahlia Garden” sign. Park at the end of that road near the Garfield statue and the Conservatory of Flowers and look for a footpath that will take you to the Dahlia Dell Picnic Area. There will be signs to guide you.

    DIRECTIONS BY BICYCLE: Get on your bikes and ride.

    *We lost track of how many years we’ve been hosting this picnic. We called it the “Enth” annual picnic for a while, but we’re certain that by now the event is into its teen years.
