Friday & Saturday, October 10 & 11, 2014 

Oakland Forever is a celebration of the people, places and things that make Oakland a fantastic neighborhood.  This truly community driven event is being organized and led by Oakland community organizations, residents, institutions and businesses.  2014 is a special milestone year, marking the 175th anniversary of when the community was first identified as “Oakland”! Drawing on the profound history of Oakland, the current culture of innovation among institutional partners, and the strong sense of community pride, this weekend will highlight and mark Oakland’s unique and vibrant character.

Oakland Forever attendees will enjoy live music and performances, art and photography exhibits, lectures and symposiums, outdoor activities, family fun, an artist and craft market, historical retrospectives, access to Oakland’s world-class cultural amenities, and much more!
