upcoming Oakland events

There's a ton of stuff going on in Oakland, and lots of it focused on art. The weather is forecast to be warm and sunny, so get out and enjoy Oakland!


Friday is a First Friday, which means it's time for Art Murmur. Art Murmur has spread all over Oakland, including Temescal, which is putting its own twist on it with the Temescal Art Hop. And what better way to start things off than dinner at my favorite food truck gathering, Bites off Broadway?

There's also Jack's Night Market and Dancing Under the Stars at Jack London Square on Friday. There's an Opening Art Reception for "Disconnect" at Transmission Gallery.

Saturday and Sunday

Saturday and Sunday are the annual East Bay Open Studios. It's a chance to explore art in and around Oakland, meet the artists in their studios, and enjoy our great city. If you love animals and beer, check out Pints for Paws benefitting the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society. Underground Runway presents Hardcopy, an art and fashion event at Warehouse 416. And there's a vegan food and beer fest at Classic Cars West.

Saturday Bonus:

Attitudinal Healing's 16th Annual ArtEsteem Exhibition, "Reflections of Me and My World", at American Steel Studios.

Further Ahead

Further ahead, Waterfront Flicks at JLS are starting up again, and there's an Oakland Urban Paths walk 6/14.
