Three Nights of Autumn Lights in Oakland

Autumn Lights is a festival of illuminated art by acclaimed Bay Area artists, in support of the nonprofit Friends of the Gardens at Lake Merritt. Nestled in Lakeside Park, the 6th annual Autumn Lights Festival will sparkle for three nights, from 6 to 11 p.m., October 19 to 21.

A unique, all-ages Oakland tradition, Autumn Lights is an important fundraiser for Lake Merritt’s free public gardens, often called the “Green Heart of Oakland.” From clay pottery lanterns to Burning Man artists, everyone in the Oakland art community comes together to create the magic.

Autumn Lights is an opportunity to immerse ourselves in mesmerizing, larger-than-life art installations, fire dancers, live music and more. Locally produced food, wine and beer will be available for purchase.

Cost: $7 to $25. Location: 666 Bellevue Ave, Oakland. For more information, visit AutumnLightsOakland.org.
