Event description
Join us for a block party celebration of Jingletown - one of Oakland's hottest art districts!

About this Event

Come celebrate Oakland with art, music, food, and community! Bring your family and join us for a celebration of our town.

This event is in celebration of a brand new mural created in collaboration with Dragon School 99 artists @dirtcobain, @kayleendaa, and @jackpot0706, @hi.irie, and @ghostghostteeth.

Explore converted warehouses and live/work loft spaces and get to know the artists, musicians and creative people who call Jingletown home. This is an area of Oakland with a rich history and many stories to tell, from Portuguese and Azorean laborers, Chicano civil rights activists, musicians and artists - all of whom have shaped the development of this unique pocket of East Oakland. Join in this free neighborhood block party!

Art Walking Tour : In conjunction with this event, there will be an Art Walking Tour lead by local cultural translator and Oakland creative, Jena Dominique of StreetSalad.Co. Explore Jingletown through its beautiful public art, artifacts, postcards, and storytelling. Get a refreshing perspective on what has shaped this neighborhood, and the people who live there now. This walking tour experience runs during the Mural Festival, from 2 - 4pm. Get your tickets here: Jingletown Art Walking Tour
