The 10th Annual Temescal Street Fair
Sunday, July 7th, 2013, Noon to 6pm


What started in 2004 as a little street fest sponsored by a small group of local merchants has blossomed into one of Oakland's premier cultural events. In 2005, the Telegraph Temescal Business Improvement District (TTBID) took over the fair's sponsorship and, since then, the event's growth has been exponential. 2012 boasted four stages (the Main stage, Kid's stage and two Jazz stages) and three additional blocks of vendors, offering even more opportunities to promote local artists, craftspeople and creative dare-to-doers, representing the area's rich tapestry of creativity and culture.


The TTBID is a certified green organization and the Street Fair is a
green event! We will be highlighting selected “green businesses” and a few
environmental non-profits for our “green zone.”
