The City of Oakley is soliciting proposals from qualified non-profit organizations to operate beer and wine event beverage concession at Oakley Summer Fest, Heart of Oakley Festival, Harvest Festival and the Jingle Ball.
We are thrilled to introduce Oakley Summer Fest, the newest addition to our summer event line up. This event will replace the Cityhood Celebration formerly held on the first Saturday of July. As our events have continued to grow and evolve, we are excited to start new traditions with this fun downtown daytime festival. This inaugural event is scheduled for Saturday, July 2nd and will include a Fun Run to kick off the day followed by the larger event from 11am-5pm on Main Street between Norcross Lane and Vintage Parkway that includes live entertainment, food and craft vendors, beer and wine, a children’s area, car show and more.
The City of Oakley began hosting the Heart of Oakley Festival in 2013 and the event has continued to grow since. The last event was held in September 2022 with an estimated attendance of over 5,000. The event includes approximately 50 retail and informational vendors, food vendors, performances, kid’s activities and beer and wine sales. The Heart of Oakley Festival is scheduled for Saturday, September 24th on Main Street between Vintage Parkway and Norcross Road.
The Harvest Festival, held on October 22nd, at Oakley Civic Center Plaza. This event includes a fun fall theme schedule of events like a pie walk, pumpkin decorating, costume parade, food and craft vendors and more. Typical attendance at this event is around 500, and this will be the first year that we add beer and wine sales to the event.
The Jingle Ball is a new event for the City of Oakley, providing local non-profit organizations an opportunity to raise funds for their organization by auctioning off a holiday tree, as well as provide an event that guests can come enjoy with entertainment, food and beer and wine. The Jingle Ball is scheduled for Saturday, December 10th to be held at the Oakley Recreation Center 1250 O’Hara Ave.
This is a great opportunity for local non-profit organizations to get involved, publicize their organization and fundraise for the great causes that their organizations work on. The Oakley City Council may select one organization for all four events or may select a different organization for each event.
