Friday Nights at de Young @ Golden Gate park (& optional dinner afterwards)


Looking for something new, fun, and free to experience? Let's explore Friday Nights at the de Young together! There is also a pop-up bar if you want to have a drink or two. :D In addition, we can also visit the Observation Tower for a 360 degree view of SF and stroll the beautiful grounds outside! (make sure you eat a little bit before you come so you don't go hungry...we can always go to late dinner somewhere in Sunset or Richmond afterwards!)

Friday Nights at the de Young are after-hours art "happenings" that include a mix of live music, dance and theater performances, film screenings, panel discussions, lectures, artist demonstrations, hands-on art activities, and exhibition tours. Local artists conduct drop-in workshops, debut new commissions, display their art in the Kimball Education Gallery, and take part in conversations about the creative process. The café offers a special Friday Night menu and specialty cocktails, and the observation tower is open until 8 pm. Artist Fellows, Artists-in-Residence, curators, scholars, and arts educators all play an active role in making Friday Nights an engaging museum experience for all.
