Girl Gang Craft Spring Market/Craft fair in Oakland, CA May 18, 2024 at Scottish Rite Center

In the heart of Oakland, California, amidst the tapestry of cultures and dreams, an artisan inspired event pulses with life. Anchored by the values of inclusivity and empowerment, Girl Gang Crafts stands as a beacon of creativity and solidarity, inviting female-identifying, non-binary, and trans artists, makers, and entrepreneurs to showcase their talents, sell their crafts, and connect with one another. Girl Gang Craft Oakland Spring Market is May 18 from 11-5 at Oakland Scottish Rite Center in the heart of Oakland by Lake Merritt. It is FREE to attend.

Step into the heart of this bustling community, and you'll find yourself immersed in a world where artistry intertwines with advocacy and where every moment whispers tales of resilience, strength and FUN!

As you enter the Girl Gang Craft event in Oakland, take in the magical atmosphere and the gorgeous Art Deco ballroom and equally stunning ladies’ lounge. The historic halls of the Scottish Rite Center serve as the stage for a symphony of creativity. Booths adorned with handcrafted wonders beckon, each offering a glimpse into the boundless imagination of local artisans. From intricate textiles to bold illustrations, every piece tells a story—an ode to the power of self-expression. These are perfect gifts for a loved one or to adorn your own space. 

This gathering is more than just a marketplace; it's a celebration of community and empowerment. Expect to find not only ceramics goods, printed apparel, jewelry and more, but also activations like permanent jewelry, aura photos, feminist cocktails and even tattoos! Visit our food truck Mozzeria for Handmade Pizzas and snag a hot coffee or iced latte from Mother Tongue Coffee.  El Patio (from Berkeley) will be serving Taylor Swift inspired cocktails. 

What truly sets the Girl Gang Craft apart is its commitment to accessibility. Admission is free for all, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to participate in this celebration of creativity and community. Regardless of background or identity, all are welcome here—a testament to the power of unity in diversity.

Snag a raffle ticket for a chance to win prizes from our 100+ vendors, and the money raised goes to support low income artists for access to free booth space and our workshops.

For those inspired to join the ranks of vendors, the path is clear, apply to their year round events in Oakland (The Bay Area) or Sacramento, CA. Girl Gang Craft also has events in New England in both Salem, MA and Providence, RI. Whether you're a seasoned artist or a budding entrepreneur, there's a place for you here—a place where your voice matters!

Plus, Girl Gang Craft also sells an apparel line–a collection of apparel and accessories for the politically active, small business owners, and witchy folx. Shop and try on in person at the event. Their new “the Feminist Urge to Destroy the Patriarchy” is a must for your politically active summer. 

As the event draws to a close, the echoes of laughter and conversation linger in the air. Memories have been made, connections forged, and hearts touched.

Girl Gang Craft isn't just an event—it's a movement, a testament to the transformative power of creativity, community, and empowerment. Join us in celebrating the boundless potential of Oakland's artistic spirit, and together, let's build a brighter, more inclusive tomorrow.
