This event is one for the books! Come get down with the GRAMMY nominated Oakland based children’s music group ALPHABET ROCKERS who make learning come alive with the beats, rhymes, dance moves and community of hip hop. 

Listen to local children’s book author Tiffany Golden take us on a journey as she reads from her Midnight Stories Series

Get inspired by Go Girls! a program where girls learn how to be bold and brave by making theater, art, music and media. Pose for local illustrator Allah El Henson and see your image come alive on paper. Speak up with Kaia Marbin, local youth activist who bravely stands for what she believes in.

This event is family friendly and welcomes all families, teachers, educators, youth workers and community members! 

Doors open at 6 pm. Event starts at 6:30 pm. 

The event will feature delicious food available from Two Mamacitas Pop Up Kitchen, fresh music jams spun by DJ XCAIROCITOSX, interactive art and book making activities, a live illustration booth with the amazing Allah El Henson, local children’s books for sale, and more!
