Mission Creek Oakland began four years ago as an extension
of the legendary Mission Creek Festival in San Francisco. Both MCO and MCFSF are partnered with the Intersection for the Arts -
the Bay Area's oldest arts organization.
Our vision is to bring the spirit
of Mission Creek -- nurturing local art and emerging artists and
community -- to the sunnier side of the Bay. We strive to represent the
of Oakland through as many art forms and musical genres as possible!
This year we are proudly co-produced by the East Bay Express!
MCO is the product of volunteer
labor: musicians, artists, producers and promoters whose reward is
coming together to witness awesome art and music, and having a good
time. Continuing in the footsteps of last year's epic month long
festival, we want to put MCO on the map as a unique and independent
voice, amidst the sea of corporate funded festivals across the bay.
Please help us provide a month of
creativity and fun in Oakland, by donating to cover its costs: renting
space and equipment, covering guarantees, and documenting shows.
Remember - supporting MCO is also
directly supporting your local arts community! We're all in this together and
we are going to make this AWESOME!!!! See you at the fest in September!
