The Mission of the Saturday in the Park – McLaren Concert Series is to promote and foster local talent, present an eclectic range of free live music performances in an outdoor Greek-style stage, and work to revive San Francisco’s legacy of a rich original music scene that produced today’s music legends.
Situated on a sunny hillside meadow and surrounded by tall shade trees, the Jerry Garcia Amphitheatre creates an intimate, friendly setting, allowing for the talents of these artists to truly shine.Concert goers can enjoy bringing the family and a picnic lunch, away from the “hustle and bustle,” for a few hours on a Saturday afternoon. “We want to bring people together in special way and showcase area talent,” said Linda Litehiser of Friends of the Amp.
In-between shows, the Friends of the AMP want you to discover over seven-and a-half miles of serene beauty, hiking, biking and natural trails and spectacular vistas running throughout the 318 acres in San Francisco’s second-largest park.
Saturday in the Park-McLaren is funded by SF Parks Alliance, grants & donations and support from SF Recreation & Parks, SF District Attorney’s Office & the San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors.
