June 12 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
GOBA’s Events Team is kicking things off on 12 June 2021 (Saturday) with its “Kick Off to Summer” event in the Arts & Entertainment District in downtown Oakland! This event will run from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Activities include a cornhole tournament, a Beer Walk, food vendors, live music, sidewalk sales, artist exhibits, kid’s activities, a car show, and much more.
There will be numerous activities for children and families as well. Local writers and actors will be at the Mountain Fresh Pavilion from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM and 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM for short “Play Bake” readings/performances. There will also be a Family Yoga Demonstration at the Mountain Fresh Pavilion from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The Oakland Arts and Entertainment District will also be sponsoring a scavenger hunt. In partnership with the Ruth Enlow Library, the Town of Oakland will be setting up a self-guided “Story Walk,” an outdoor reading experience where a children’s book is deconstructed, and the pages of the book are spaced on a set walking trail.
This is a rain or shine event. A complete map and listing of free parking locations, events, and times can be found at www.oaklandmd.com.
