40th Street Block Party | Oakland
This summer, bask in a fun, lively day at the 40th Street Block Party, located on 40th Street between Webster Street and Shafter Avenue. With local caterers such as Homeroom, Clove and Hoof, and Kenny’s Heart and Soul, you may need to bring wider pants. But don’t worry about your waistline, because dancing off those calories is a must with bands such as Smokers, a punk rock band, and Younger Lovers, a pop punk band.
For those with vegan diets, there are no worries; No Worries Vegan Filipino will be serving up platters of your favorite foods. Kids can stay busy with face painting and arts and crafts. For the 21-and-over crowd craving an adult beverage, The Hog’s Apothecary and Oakland Yard will sell beer and wine.
The 40th Street Block Party will be on Saturday, July 15, from 11am to 5pm.
An easily BARTable event, the 40th Street Block Party can be reached through MacArthur Station. Just walk for 7 minutes along 40th Street until you see the familiar front of Homeroom Mac and Cheese.
