Location Details
Oakland Museum of California
Opening Celebration Weekend Presented by Target

Saturday, May 1. 11:00 a.m.
Sunday, May 2, 6 p.m.

Celebrate with OMCA! The newly transformed Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) opens Saturday, May 1, with 31 hours of continuous, round-the-clock free programs and events.

The festivities begin at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 1, on the street in front of the new Oak Street entrance with a Native American Ohlone blessing, a marching band, Project Bandaloop performing a spectacular aerial dance, and more. And the non-stop celebration continues through 6 p.m. Sunday, May 2. "Only in California" Saturday afternoon activities highlight the innovative and creative spirit of California.

Saturday evening and overnight activities take on a more adult flavor with dancing, food, a no-host bar, flashlight tours, and conversations on unique California topics---merging into early morning yoga.

Sunday is especially for families with dancing, drumming, juggling, the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, and more. The new OMCA Store will be open the full 31 hours so visitors can shop throughout the event.

And of course the highlight of the 31 hours will be the excitement of discovering the story of California, the story of you, in the new Galleries of California Art and History.
