Groovin’ at Art and Soul 2019

July 01, 2019

Amazing music, dazzling dance, unique crafts and artwork, fantastic food, and an abundant assortment of craft beers and wine—all this and much more will be on hand at the 19th Annual Art and Soul Festival in downtown Oakland from July 27-28. Groove to the sounds of such Grammy-winning headliners as Estelle and Fantastic Negrito and enjoy live music and dance on four stages, including blues and gospel showcases and the ever-popular Turf Dance Battle and the Urban/World Dance Festival.

Browse some of the finest locally-crafted items in our Artisan Marketplace, and join in on the annual community mural project. Did we mention food? Savor such culinary delights as Gumbo, Crawfish Etouffee, and Jambalaya, along with Ethiopian cuisine, Lumpia, Hawaiian barbecue, turkey legs and more. Wash it all down with jazzy juice drinks, local wine, or craft beer. Be sure to bring the kids – children of all ages are welcome at the Family Fun Zone, featuring rides, games, arts & crafts, and much more.
