Join the fun as Oakland First Friday returns to Uptown. Oakland First Fridays Event is the epicenter for community to come together to celebrate, sustain & support the arts and Oakland’s creative economy.
Attendees will enjoy emerging artists, makers, gourmet food vendors, musicians, cypher circles (dance battles, spoken word), drumming circles, acrobats, magicians, and many uniquely talented street performers and their audience.
Here are the details about this month’s OAKFF from their site
This month we're honoring Black History Month and combining it with Valentines Day to celebrate “Black Love.” In addition to food, art and a full lineup on the Main Stage we'll be featuring Articipation @ Burner Corner (featuring the Paint Wall!), Mario B. Productions will stage one of their youth-focused runway shows and JumpBunch is bringing an obstacle course to the Kid Zone at 23rd Street. And OakFF stalwarts Curb Service, Soulbeatz Oakland and TURFinc will be on hand.
There is also a special popup Gallery at 2519 telegraph, featuring Xochitl Guerrero, Sam Majeed, Steve Javiel, Nicte Ordonez & Maya Ramirez, and Formosa Fine Chocolates. As always, there is something for the little ones too. The Kid Zone will feature games and activities for kids of all ages as well as a monthly raffle of a handcrafted playhouse courtesy of Habitat for Humanity.
