FEATURED EVENT!

14th Annual Art & Soul Oakland

August 2 & 3, 2014
The festival that launched downtown Oakland’s transformation as the Bay Area’s hottest dining and arts scene, Art & Soul Oakland will sizzle this year with two art- and music-packed days featuring live jazz, rock, gospel, E.D.M., punk, honky-tonk, metal, world, Latin, folk, R&B, and blues music performed by national recording artists and top local talent. This year’s event also features late-night hours on Saturday; epic scales of art installations, film projections, and light-based art from local artists including de Young Museum artist fellows and artist-in-residence alumni, American Steel, and others; hundreds of artisan booths; gourmet global cuisine and mobile food trucks; and for kids, carnival rides, music, art activities and costumed characters. Easy to get to and fun for all, the 12th annual Art & Soul Oakland offers direct access via public transit in addition to free parking for cars and bikes.
