FEATURED EVENT!

16th Annual Art & Soul Oakland

August 20 & 21, 2016
The City of Oakland’s flagship festival that launched a downtown renaissance, will celebrate its Sweet 16 with two big days of music, art, dance and food, including the Oaktown Throwdown BBQ Competition. Professional and backyard pit masters from all over California will show off their skills while competing for cash prizes. The public will be invited to view the action up close and, for a small fee, sample succulent BBQ ribs, chicken and pork. As in previous years, tens of thousands are expected for a festive weekend showcasing the Best of the East Bay. This year’s lineup will spotlight Oakland’s hot music scene and legacy, featuring dozens of top local bands performing Blues, R&B, Gospel, Funk, Jazz, Rock and more. The full lineup will be announced in early June. Additional highlights include the return of the mesmerizing Turf & All-Styles Dance Battle; the Bay Area’s hottest urban, world and modern dance troupes; scores of artisans and an interactive Family Fun Zone.
