This event will take place in the heart of the Uptown District on Franklin Street between 22nd and 20th Streets. Restaurants, Bars will showcase their taste creations, delectable bites with refreshing organic libations and non-alcoholic delights. Oakland has become prominently known in the food and beverage industry, as a top culinary destination globally by well-respected household media outlets. Streets will be lined with Art and Shops from the community for the convenience of consumers to browse and discover new treasures. Our Musical Stage will prove ground for our community’s top talent, emerging artists and a living laboratory for experimentation plus discovery.
51Oakland was established to ensure that all Oakland Public School Students Have equal access to Art & Music Education.
Oakland Youth Aspire enriches the lives of youth by creating a fun and welcoming environment that promotes a healthy lifestyle and fosters open communication, empathy, and the development of interpersonal skills.
