July 11-22, 9am – 6pm
The annual twelve-day-only celebration of pianos in the park marks its fifth year at San Francisco Botanical Garden with a special anniversary edition, featuring more performances, special events, and new opportunities for the public to play.
Five years ago, Sunset Piano and San Francisco Botanical Garden (SFBG) joined forces to offer the public a uniquely interactive experience of music in nature, placing twelve pianos in some of the Garden’s most beautiful locations and inviting anyone to come and play what they like. Now, the annual twelve-day-long Flower Piano is one of the Bay Area’s most highly anticipated musical events of the summer and celebrates its fifth year at the Garden with a special anniversary edition, featuring new opportunities for the public to play, more performances by professional musicians, special events for families including the new evening time Flower Piano at Sunset, a community sing-along, free piano lessons, and three evenings of Flower Piano at Night, a special after dark event with food trucks and outdoor bars.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Flower Piano,” says Stephanie Linder, Executive Director, San Francisco Botanical Garden Society. “With more scheduled performances, new community partnerships, and increased programming, this year promises to be the best yet. The word most commonly used by participants to describe the experience is ‘magical’ and I agree – through Flower Piano, the Garden comes alive in an entirely new way each July.”
Price: Free for SF Residents, $9/non-resident adults, $6/seniors/youth, and $19 for families, which includes two adults and all children living in the same household.
