“Fall into Friday” – First Friday Oak Park
All the wonderful colors of fall will soon be covering the streets of Oak Park and what better place to take it all in than the Oak Park Broadway Corridor on First Friday.
First Friday is an exciting community-oriented event that celebrates all that Oak Park has to offer and transforms the Broadway Corridor into an evening full of shopping, dining, art installations and festive community celebrations.
Come celebrate the fall season with warm seasonal drinks from local coffeehouses, a pop-up park for kids and adults, food trucks featuring seasonal fall items, special sales at retail locations, live music and art activations from some of Sacramento’s top designers, artisans and muralists.

Deschutes Brewery is back for another visit to the Farm-to-Fork Capitol on Saturday, October 8. Street Pub is a family friendly one-stop shop to try a variety of Deschutes beers with over 60 taps featured – from Black Butte XXVIII all the way to year-round favorites like Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Fresh Squeezed IPA. Deschutes will be pairing their beers with culinary creations from Deschutes Executive Chef, Jeff Usinowicz and a few local chefs as well. Street Pub will also feature local, live music from River City Radio (2-3:30pm), Brass Magic (4-5:30pm), Humble Wolf (6-7:30pm), & IDEATEAM (8-10pm).
And if an amazing selection of beers, delicious food and live music wasn’t enough to sell you on attending, what if I told you 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Runnin’ for Rhett?
Entry to the event is free and tokens good for one 16 oz. beer will be sold for $6. VIP tickets will also be available for purchase upon entry.
