“Oakland First Fridays” Block Party

Oakland First Fridays is an immersive art and community experience on the first Friday of each month on Telegraph Avenue from West Grand to 27th Street.

Every First Friday from 5–9:30 pm, Oakland’s KONO district (Koreatown Northgate) springs to life with galleries, artist collectives, street artists, local culinary artisans, performers, musicians, dancers, DJs, 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.

One of the cultural partners of Oakland First Fridays is Oakland Art Murmur, a collection of galleries and mixed-use venues many of which are open First Friday evenings. The range of artistic exhibitions is inspiring.

Most of the venues are open from 6–9 pm. Many of the galleries are adjacent to the Telegraph Avenue site of Oakland First Fridays on 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th Streets going east toward the hills.

Directions to Oakland First Fridays
Parking is a breeze! Here is a list of parking garages in the area. There are limited parking meters on side streets along Telegraph Ave. Make sure to bring quarters! Feeling lazy? Take BART to 19th Street and stroll a few blocks down to 23rd Street and Telegraph Ave.
