The storied Stern Grove Festival kicked off its 81st season with The Big Picnic, the organization’s annual fundraiser, at Sigmund Stern Grove in San Francisco. The Big Picnic raises funds each year in support of the Festival’s free concerts and arts education programs. An event for the whole family on Father’s Day, The Big Picnic included a private, ticketed party followed by a free concert featuring soul sensations Peabo Bryson and Jeffrey Osborne.
