It was truly an honor to be in attendance for Visit Oakland’s 4th Annual Tourism Breakfast.

Not only was the breakfast yummy for the tummy, during the presentation section in the James Moore Theater, Visit Oakland announced plans for Oakland Art Month in May of 2018.

According to TravelWeek.

“The inaugural Oakland Art Month kicks off in May 2018, for example, with partners that include OMCA, Oakland International Film Festival and the Oakland Symphony…“The goal of the program is to showcase a wealth of incredible arts offerings in Oakland that can be enjoyed by the local community and visitors from afar,” said Mark Everton, President & CEO of Visit Oakland. “By promoting May as Oakland Art Month, Visit Oakland aims to encourage overnight stays to attend several art events during their stay. Furthermore, the profile of smaller events can be raised in part of the larger city promotion.””

“On behalf of The Oakland Film Society, we are excited to bridge the art of filmmaking through The Oakland International Film Festival with other art forms in the month of May,” says, David N. Roach, Co-Founder/Director of The Oakland Film Society. “We believe, together, we can create an experience in Oakland that will not only connect Oaklanders to one another, but attract visitors from far and wide to city of Oakland.”
