Mark Your Calendar: Nite Souk

Another fun event for you Bay Area locals: the Old Oakland Nite Souk.

On Saturday, August 18, from 6 to 11 p.m. the getting-hipper-by-the-minute Old Oakland district around Washington and Ninth streets will be transformed into an open-air bazaar filled with music, comedy, dance, food, film screenings, kids' crafts, and locally produced wares for sale.

According to the organizers, "the Nite Souk promises to be a magical and eclectic event bringing together culture, street performers, and exotic foods. Inspired by night markets around the world, the bazaar will celebrate the community and embrace nighttime in Oakland."

Participating vendors include Oaklandish, Mignonne, fiftyseven-thirtythree, Sunshine Art, Forrealism, Lo Lo, artist Lori Pino, Sew Crafty Collective, and others.

Bring a folding chair and a blanket, too, for a free 9 p.m. screening of Little Miss Sunshine, courtesy of the Old Oakland Outdoor Cinema Series.

Oh...I was hoping I could go to this too, with some of my oakland buddies and I'm mad I can't make it. Take lots of pics Leah!
