San Francisco's Largest and Best Annual Waterfront Party

"What would it be like if Coachella was on the Marina Green for a day?"

"How crazy will I get at an outdoor party with drinking, bands, food trucks, fun girls, cool guys, drinking games and everything else awesome?"

These are questions you should be asking yourself for Saturday September 6th, 2014.

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. We rented out the entire Marina Green--1 mile in circumference. We're filling it with fun people from all around San Francisco.

We will also be holding the Second Annual Guardsmen Cornhole Tournament.
