The 18th annual Oakland Art & Soul Festival is coming up!
But with a twist this year. In 2018 it will be in July, even though you are so used to it being in August. And of course it will cost more.
Date: Saturday and Sunday July 28th and July 29th
Time: 12noon – 6pm
Location: Downtown Oakland, City Center Broadway/14th
With all of the other events in Oakland these days it’s hard to be excited for the Art and Soul Festival. It’s over priced, has less food than a free Friday Night Off The Grid, less art than Oakland’s free monthly Art Murmur and the lineup has disappeared. In the past for only $5 I have seen Lyrics Born, Hieroglyphics, Dead Presidents, Tonie Tonie Tone and more. Now the headliner is “Five Tempting Men”.
However, stay tuned for the full 2018.
