"Normality is a paved road. It's comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it." - Vincent Van Gogh
This is a complimentary, non-normal event for our community. Seating and space is limited. You are encouraged to bring your own chair and dress warmly. Think of it as movie glamping!
We have not decided on a movie and encourage your suggestions! And while we hope to host a family night soon, you can expect an R-rated movie. This is an adult event. Attendees must be 21 years or older.
Come early for our full kitchen and menu. A limited menu will be available once the movie begins.
To protect from COVID-19, masks, safe distancing and group sizes (6 max) will be strongly enforced. Those not respecting safety protocol will be asked to leave.

The Stern Grove free outdoor music festival was initially scheduled to take place on Sundays from June 14 through August 16, 2020. It is the first time in the Festival’s long history that it has been canceled.
This summer, in place of canceled performances, the Festival is creating Best of the Fest, a virtual video series featuring highlights from the Festival’s vast library of concert footage from the past 13 years.
Hosted by TV and radio personality and seasoned emcee Liam Mayclem, Sheila E. (2012), Pink Martini (2013), The Doobie Brothers (2015), and George Clinton (2016) are among the musicians to be included in the weekly concerts.
Best of the Fest will also feature artist interviews, scenic footage of the Grove, and special guests. It will be posted on the Festival’s website, YouTube channel, and Facebook page every Sunday from June 14 through Sunday, August 16.
Beginning Sunday, May 31, visit sterngrove.org for each Sunday’s lineup.
In addition to Best of the Fest, the Festival will be offering a virtual arts education program utilizing many of the teaching artists who would have participated this summer. Classes in music-making and dance will be offered online on the Festival’s YouTube and Facebook channels.
