Peralta Junction's Closing Party


Friday Nov 30, 2012 (7–10pm)


Peralta Junction

Mandela Pkwy and West Grand Ave




Three months ago, a 24,000-square-foot lot in West Oakland was just a vacant lot. Then the Peralta Junction Project came along and filled that vacant lot with striped circus tents, a midway, artisans and vendors, food trucks, a pumpkin patch, weekly movie nights, a 25-ton Rube Goldberg machine, and live musical and theatrical performances. Now, sadly, it's time to bid farewell to the circus, and to celebrate the pop-up collaboration that quickly became a beloved community establishment. Peralta Junction's closing party promises to be a fitting way to say goodbye and to celebrate — big top, performers, games, and all.

Peralta Junction says…

Well, friends and family... there's more rain on the way, so we've decided to strike the beautiful striped tents before they get soggy wet. This means that the two evenings we'd planned for this week — Movie Night Mash-Up and the Closing Party — have been CANCELED. Once the dust settles, we’ll post information on our web site and here on Facebook about what’s to follow! We're putting out a CALL FOR PHOTOS & VIDEO of the Peralta Junction Project to document and to promote future installations. If you have images, still or moving, that you are willing to share please email: We'd be very appreciative! Heartfelt thanks to all those who participated in a myriad ways. We set out to launch an experiment, to see if an art project could help create a rich, warm, welcoming new community place in West Oakland, and thanks to all of you, it worked. Much love to you and until soon, Peralta Junction
