    Saturday, August 04

    7:30AM - 5:15PM

    The 2018 Taste of Oakland (formerly Taste of Oakland Fest) is brought to you by D’Wayne Wiggins Presents (DWP). This signature event celebrates Oakland’s and the Bay Area’s unique culture of independent and iconic musicians, culinary talents, and innovation in technology. DWP adds a new dimension to the standard music and food festival format by providing youth internship opportunities where local students will shadow the production team for the day. Interns will be an integral part of the team. The project-based internship will include all aspects of creative development and production. In addition, proceeds from the festival will benefit Youth Aid, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, that provides free music lessons and business fundamentals to youth in the city of Oakland.

    The festival will feature an amazing musical line-up throughout the day, local food and craft vendors, and tech demos to children’s entertainment, sports clinics, group dancing, and other activities.
