26th Annual Oakland Chinatown Streetfest 

When: Aug. 25-26, 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. 2013
Price: free
The Year of the Snake may be less auspicious than the Year of the Dragon, but regardless, it’s time to celebrate with Oakland’s 26th Annual Chinatown StreetFest. The festival, held between 7th and 9th streets and Broadway and Harrison Street, is hosted by the Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce and draws thousands each year. Taking place on Saturday and Sunday, the festivities will showcase Chinese culture (as well as others) with performances by US Shaolin Kung Fu Martial Arts, Budabelly Band, and China’s Spirit Music Ensemble. More than two hundred vendors will be on hand offering jewelry, crafts, and food. If you’re in the mood for authentic ethnic cuisine, check out Hawaii BBQ and Mr. Lumpia, or get your fried food fix from the funnel cake and corn-dog stands. Kids can enjoy the carnival or art activities organized by the Oakland Asian Cultural Center and the Oakland Museum of California.
