NEXT EVENT: DECEMBER 7, 2018
REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Oakland First Fridays has come a long with from the guerrilla art festival it started out as in 2005. It now involves events all over Oakland, and our five-block festival on Telegraph draws thousands of people to the KONO district. We're proud of our track record managing a safe and inclusive celebration of Oakland's arts and culture.
We regretfully cancelled November’s event in response to a shooting in October. Although this happened several hours after we closed and several blocks away from the event footprint, it was something we took seriously. In recent weeks we’ve held many meetings and heard many opinions, and undertaken many new initiatives to keep Oakland First Fridays going as the safe, inclusive, only-in-Oakland phenomenon it has become.
We look forward to seeing you in December!
