Air Force One is scheduled to land at San Francisco International Airport early Tuesday afternoon.
The president will attend a lunch fundraiser at the W Hotel in San Francisco, a campaign official said.
Ticket prices for the event -- which will feature a performance by Jack Johnson -- start at $5,000 and roughly 200 people are set to attend, the official said.
Obama will then depart from SFO less than three hours after arriving.
The anti-war group The World Can't Wait is planning to rally outside of the W Hotel on Tuesday to protest U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan and the Obama administration's funding of other military operations in the Middle East, according to the group.
