Most Authentically Oakland Weekly Event

Off the Grid OMCA

Just six months after it started, it's almost hard to imagine Oakland without the weekly street party-slash-concert-slash-food festival-slash-museum event that is the weekly Off the Grid at the Oakland Museum of California. Not only does OtG include and highlight some of the East Bay's best food, music, and art and act as probably the only event in the East Bay where you can find a killer Korean-fusion burrito, live salsa music, free kids' craft activities, and discounted access to one of the best museums in the state, all in one place, it attracts a truly diverse, distinctly Oakland collection of people: little kids and big kids; hipsters and hippies; out-of-towners and lifelong Oaklanders; art aficionados, foodies, natural-science geeks, people who just want to sit in the sunshine and watch the whole teeming, vital thing unfold around them. There's truly something for everyone at Off the Grid Oakland, and it's truly something.
