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
