Join us at Fans’ Fest, for a vibrant celebration of our city’s rich sports legacy, presented by the passionate Oakland 68’s and Last Dive Bar! Moving beyond the traditional baseball-focused fest and filling the void left since 2019, Fans’ Fest is reborn by the fans and for the fans—creating a genuine community vibe. This year, we amplify our tribute to Oakland’s small businesses, local breweries, and diverse sports teams, including former A’s players and the Oakland Roots/Soul, among others, embodying the true spirit of The Town.
