Thursday night is probably better than Sunday afternoon-the lines are much shorter… in either case Off the Grid is a lot of fun.

Cozy up with Off the Grid at “Presidio Twilight” – a free weekly evening event on the Main Post Lawn from 5-9 pm every Thursday from mid-May to October.

Off the Grid street food vendors will serve up dishes tapas-style while you relax under the stars on the Presidio’s Main Parade Ground.

Presidio Twilight
Every Thursday from May 18 through October 2017 | 5-9 pm
Main Post Lawn, Presidio
FREE Admission

Celebrate summer evenings with lantern-lit dining cabanas, blanket-side cocktail service, fire pits, live music under the stars, and views of the sun setting over San Francisco Bay.

Back for its fourth season, the gathering features delicious international food and drink from a large selection of local vendors. Grab your blanket, bundle up, and enjoy San Francisco Bay views, yoga at dusk, and a great community vibe.

Do I need to have a cabana or fire pit reservation to enjoy the event?
Not at all. There is plenty of lawn space at the event, so bring some blankets or some lawn chairs and enjoy.

How many does a cabana fit?
The cabanas fit up to four people comfortably. There will be a blanket provided with the cabana as well.

Do we need to bring anything for the Fire Pit?
No you do not. Everything will be provided for the fire pits and they will have a staff member of The Presidio Trust to light the pits at around sunset.

Can we make s’mores?
Unfortunately, they do not allow people to roast marshmallows through the fire pits provided, so no s’mores please.
