Friday Nights @ OMCA: "Black Friday" Night!

Friday, November 29, 2013, 5–9 pm

The holidays have begun, so take a break from your busy plans and bring your out-of-town guests to OMCA to enjoy fun, festivities, and food trucks from Off the Grid!

Savor California beer and wine in the amphitheater and check out all the galleries, live music, dance lessons, food demos, activities for kids, and more. Can’t get enough of Black Friday shopping? Visit the OMCA Store, full of artisan crafts and uniquely Californian gifts, or check out the pop-up holiday kiosk near the Koi Pond. Make your Thanksgiving weekend a warm one with OMCA.

What to expect on November 29:

  • Twelve gourmet food trucks from Off the Grid featuring the best in local cuisine
  • Local beer and wine specials in the Blue Oak beer garden
