East Bay Fall Fun

Fall is the season for all senses, especially along the Oakland waterfront. Oakland’s newest waterfront park, Township Commons and the open-air space at the 9th Avenue Terminal Center, is a huge hit with residents and visitors alike – hosting an incredible lineup of events just outside our doorstep. Whether you decide to enjoy what’s happening at home or venture a little further, here are a few fall events we are looking forward to this season.

Thru November 21, Vibemap Jack London Challenge. With the help of Vibemap’s city discovery app, participants can rack up “challenge points” by visiting more than 80 places and experiences curated by the organizers.

Find some of fall's favorites like grapes, apples, figs, winter squash, and more at the Jack London Square Farmers Market. This popular market takes place every Sunday and is a great venue to grab all types of goods. At just over a mile from your door at Orion, the transit paths along the Embarcadero make it an easy walk or bike between Brooklyn Basin and Jack London Square. Open year-round on Sundays from 9am to 2pm. Preserve your fall fruits with these tips.
