Jingletown Block Party
- This event has passed.
October 19 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us for a block party celebration of Jingletown – one of Oakland’s hottest art districts!
FREE COMMUNITY BLOCK PARTY: This event is in celebration of a brand new mural created in collaboration with Dragon School 99 artists @dirtcobain, @kayleendaa and @jackpot0706. Explore converted warehouses and live/work loft spaces and get to know the artists, musicians and creative people who call Jingletown home. This is an area of Oakland with a rich history and many stories to tell, from Portuguese and Azorean laborers, Chicano civil rights activists, musicians and artists – all of whom have shaped the development of this unique pocket of East Oakland.
Bring your friends and family to this free neighborhood block party!
