The 4th Annual SF Lawn Party will be held Saturday, September 12th on Marina Green. This year the SF Lawn Party promises to be better than ever with great music, games and food, so bring a blanket or a lawn chair and join the fun. Gourmet food trucks will be on site and along with cold beer from Lagunitas Brewing Co.

Last year, you helped us raise enough money to send 68 at risk kids to summer camp. Join us again this year for San Francisco's largest one day waterfront event.

All proceeds benefit The Guardsmen - supporting educational and outdoor initiatives for at-risk youth in the Bay Area.

Special thanks to the San Francisco Recreation & Park Department.

ABOUT THE LAWN PARTY

Come down to the Marina Green for food, a beer and wine garden, 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 lawn games, activities and fun people from all around San Francisco.

We will also be holding the 4th Annual Guardsmen Cornhole Tournament.

Lawn Games

  • Cornhole (non-tourny play is right next to tournament play)
  • Horseshoes
  • Bocce Ball
  • Croquet
  • BYOG (aka bring your own games): You are encouraged to bring just about any game you can think of, we welcome your creativity. There will be hundreds of people available to play and enjoy it with you.

Cornhole Tournament

Team registration and practice will start at noon and the tournament will begin at 12:45pm. The format is double-elimination with 32 teams of two competing for valuable prizes and bragging rights. For more about Cornhole (aka Baggo) please visit www.baggo.com. All teams will be supplied with complete rules of the game when they arrive.

Each member of your team will need to purchase a ticket for the Lawn Party. Additionally, you will need to purchase a single Tournament Entry for your team. When you purchase your Tournament Entry, you will have an opportunity to enter your team name. Then, tell all your friends to come watch you win! Please no vulgar team names - keep it classy, San Francisco. The Guardsmen reserve the right to reject or change any inappropriate or duplicate team names, at our discretion.
