“Jerry Day is a civic and cultural event that celebrates one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time and San Francisco native son – Jerry Garcia. This event captures the true spirit of Jerry Garcia as we celebrate his legacy, the Jerry Garcia Amphitheater, and recognize his Excelsior roots. By uniting the diverse communities of San Francisco through Jerry’s music, we are creating something extraordinary for Jerry’s childhood neighborhood – the Excelsior District, McLaren Park, and the City and County of San Francisco. Happy Jerry Day to all!” – San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom
That’s right folks, August 1 is Jerry Day in San Francisco.
The celebration concert at his namesake amphitheater is today from noon to 6:00pm.
