The East Bay Express holds an annual reader poll to find out who is the Best of the East Bay. Readers vote for the best in various categories, ranging from the Best Band to the Best Brunch Place for Vegans and Carnivores to Coexist, and everything in between. To celebrate the winners, the East Bay Express holds the Best of the East Bay Party at the end of the summer! Featured at this party are all types of East Bay food, drink, and retail vendors displaying their wares; East Bay non-profits educating the public about the amazing work that they do; a multitude of East Bay bands jamming on eight different stages as well as dancers, comedians, and other artists showing off their talents; sports demonstrations and car shows; and a kids’ zone with magic shows, art projects, and other hands-on activities; and more!
This year’s Best of the East Bay Party takes place on Friday, August 7th from 5 PM to midnight at the Oakland Museum of California. The Oakland Museum of California is located just one block away from Lake Merritt BART Station, so you can take BART to the event. There will also be Bike Valet parking available onsite.
Each year the East Bay Express chooses an East Bay non-profit to highlight and support through the event; for the Best of 2009 Party, OneCalifornia Foundation is honored to be that chosen non-profit! This means that, while the event is free, all bar proceeds will go to the Foundation. See the article on the event’s blog about the party supporting local non-profits.
