Support Oakland First Fridays!

Oakland First Fridays has been the soul of the Bay Area: a vital place for local entrepreneurs, and a gathering where people from all walks of life come together to celebrate.

Through the support of our generous community (you), local leaders and sponsors, and the diligent work of our staff, we're ecstatic to announce that First Fridays is back! 

We still need your help to get things running smoothly! Please support us and our cherished event.

Funds raised will be used to:

- Fund our community organization throughout the year
- Pay for necessary staff and expenses like security
