Don’t miss the 14th annual Summer Reading Celebration with the Oakland Public Library held in OMCA’s lush gardens. Enjoy Hip-Hop dance performances and demonstrations by TURFinc in celebration of special exhibition RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom (closing August 12). TURFinc is an Oakland dance company that uses the powerful and unique dance style of TURF as a positive platform for dancers, youth, and community.

Enjoy our bounce house, giant chess, face painting, and more by Oakland Parks & Recreation, plus a fabulous story time by the Oakland Public Library. Say hello to Clifford the Big Red Dog and meet caricature artist Rad Sanza, and enjoy a good read in the sun.

Museum hours on Sunday, August 5 are 10 am–6 pm.

Suggested donation for general admission: $5 per person. There is an additional $4 charge for special exhibition RESPECT. No advance online tickets are available for First Sundays. Your contribution helps us provide access to other visitors in the community.
