Oakland Museum of CA’s Free Outdoor Lunchtime Concerts (Every Saturday)

Every Saturday from January–March, we invite you to gather on campus for our new free program series “Lunchtime Sessions: Music, Dance, and Storytelling.” Grab your favorite picnic blanket, bring your lunch, and join us as we come together to delight in the joy of live performance outside on our 10th Street Amphitheater (near the Koi Pond on the Lower Level).
