ABOUT THE LAWN PARTY

Take a short walk down the hill from the Union Street Festival to the Marina Green for a 3 acres beer and wine garden with live music, lawn games, and majestic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, all while supporting at-risk youth in the Bay Area and enjoying the famous Guardsmen hospitality.

This will be the most fun you've ever had on Marina Green. The Marina Green is 1 mile in circumference and we're filling it with fun people from all around San Francisco.

We will also be holding the 3rd Annual Guardsmen Cornhole Tournament.
