Oakland First Fridays


korean culture fest and oakland gets proud! • September 6, 2019


For September we have a double-header!
We're kicking off Oakland Pride weekend with a lineup of entertainment and activities celebrating our diverse and wonderful town in the leadup to Sunday's parade and festival.
And, once again KONO is putting on the Korean Culture Fest, putting a spotlight on the art, culture, cuisine and performance of the people who put the "K" in KONO!

As ever, Oakland First Fridays is family-friendly and free (though donations are always welcome).


About Oakland First Fridays

Oakland First Fridays is an inclusive art and community experience on the first Friday of each month from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Telegraph Avenue from West Grand to 27th Street. Oakland's KONO district springs to life with this event, where visitors can enjoy galleries, artist collectives, street artists, local culinary artisans, performers, musicians, dancers, DJ’s, and poets gathering for Oakland First Friday events. Thousands of people come from across the Bay Area and beyond to see and experience art, be inspired, eat great food, enjoy live music, and stroll through the amazing, eclectic city of Oakland. An economic impact report shows that the Oakland First Fridays has a major, positive economic impact on the KONO community.
