What are you fundraising for?

How do I get there?
The Festival is BARTable! We recommend taking BART to Fruitvale Station to be delivered right to the heart of the festival.
You can also ride your bicycle, walk, or take AC Transit to the festival! Traffic is very congested around the festival area during Sunday, and parking is extremely limited.
Where do I park?
Parking will be challenging. Try San Leandro Blvd.
