The Berkeley Arts Festival Is On Vacation

We no longer have a home for the Berkeley Arts Festival. After more than 5 years in our wonderful space at 2133 University Avenue we are searching for a new space and would appreciate any suggestions you have. Contact us at: fabarts@silcon.com

Until then, we will continue this calendar of arts events going on in Berkeley.

Ongoing Events

Mike's Out of Doors Sculpture Wall

Location: South side of Ashby Avenue between Pine Street and Elmwood Court.

IMPROVISED MUSIC AT ITS MOST SUBLIME. Etherial. Mesmerizing.... Actualy; it's been 6 years since our last concert; just guessing (and remembering).

This is a one-off concert in Berkeley for our friends in the San Francisco Bay Area... a (hopefully) special night of music by a trio known earlier as MAYBE MONDAY; long-time friends and musical associates in a trio that played many shows from 1996 - 2007, but only one trio show since then. We're really looking forward to it. And the venue is a very nice, intimate space (with couches) where you can RELAX AND FOCUS ON THE MUSIC.
