This year our Autumn Lights Festival will be three mesmerizing nights, Thursday October 19 thru Saturday October 21, 6-11 pm. Tickets and more info: autumnlightsoakland.org
We always sell out ahead of time! Please share this event!
The Autumn Lights Festival is a unique Oakland tradition, a three-night art and light event. It's the sixth year for our community gathering, held within the Gardens at Lake Merritt in Lakeside Park. The Festival is a fundraiser for these beautiful, free public gardens, which are truly the “Green Heart of Oakland." Local artists create gigantic and small works of art using light, like the amazing 2016 piece, above, by Imaginary Photons. From hand-crafted clay lanterns to Burning Man artists, the whole Bay art community comes together to support our beautiful gardens. #oaklandalf
