Explore with the Oakland Summer Vibes Passport

This June we are excited to uplift and continue OMCA’s collaboration with Vibemap and Visit Oakland through the  ‘Oakland Summer Vibes Passport,’ an innovative digital initiative aimed at showcasing the vibrant cultural offerings of The Town and fostering community engagement.

The ‘Oakland Summer Vibes Passport’ is a digital platform that encourages both locals and tourists to explore the diverse attractions Oakland has to offer, including the Chabot Space and Science Center, Children’s Fairyland, the Oakland Zoo, and Oakland Roots and Soul Sports Club. Participants can download the Vibemap app to earn limited edition badges by engaging with each attraction, from visiting exhibits to exploring unique features like the Flamingo Habitat at the Oakland Zoo or the Gallery of California Natural Sciences at OMCA.

Having begun early May and set to run until August 31st, the ‘Oakland Summer Vibes Passport’ offers participants the chance to win a range of prizes, including behind-the-scenes experiences at the Oakland Zoo, field level seats to an Oakland Roots/Soul match, and memberships at OMCA and the Chabot Space and Science Center.
