Submitted by the Event Organizer
The City of Oakland is partnering with the Downtown Oakland Association to host a Grand Re-Opening Celebration marking the completion of the $7 million Latham Square project.
DJ Aebledee will be spinning between live performances by Jax and headlining will be “Rubadub Posse” featuring singer-lyricist Kimiko Joy as the group pays tribute to the greatest reggae legends with music to up lift your soul.
There will be free food provided by several local restaurants, arts & crafts activities and retail vendors drawn from the immediate neighborhood. A special retail passport will encourage revelers to explore the merchants surrounding Latham Square.
The transformative project nearly quadrupled the size of this public gathering space in the heart of downtown Oakland, where Broadway and Telegraph intersect. As part of the project, water will flow in the Latham Fountain for the first time in 75 years.
