Event Details

At Children’s Fairyland, we’re honoring the Black History born right here in our beloved city of Oakland. We’re celebrating the ingenuity, contributions, triumphs and culture of Oakland’s African-American community over the last 100+ years.

Throughout the month of February, Fairyland’s plaza is transformed into a spectacular visual display highlighting important people, time periods, and movements in the creating and shaping of Oakland’s rich history. You’ll become familiar with compelling figures and facts you never knew you never knew, but definitely want to know! From Black Cowboys to Black Panthers and so much more in between, this educational experience is for the entire family and it’s one for the books! You’ve got to see it! 

Special Performances:

Saturday, February 4 and Sunday, February 5
Rapper/poet Jamey Williams lights up the Emerald City stage with an electrifying show your kiddos will love! Two shows daily for two whole days! Come see Jamey at 1:30 and 2:30.

Saturday, February 11 and Sunday, February 12
Bay Area storytelling legend Kirk Waller weaves music, spoken word, rhythm and movement into his truly unforgettable performances, making him a Fairyland favorite! 

In between cruising the retrospective and catching Kirk and Jamey, get on the good foot at Fairyland and dance to the sweet sounds of soul music playing throughout the park. You will definitely be glad you came. It’s going to be sooo Oakland.
