We are proud to call Oakland our hometown and to support the work residents and business owners do to revitalize our neighborhoods and increase the quality of services available for everyone. A number of our clients are starting and growing businesses in Oakland’s Laurel District.
One event that happens in the Laurel is The Laurel Street Fair. The Laurel Street Fair is expecting 15,000 visitors in 2017 (the Fair is scheduled for August 12, 2017 and you can find more information about opportunities to become a vendor and a sponsor here). This family-friendly event features small business vendors, performances, and a celebration of cultures that make up our community. This event is a great way to meet your neighbors or grow visibility for your business.
Some of our favorite clients operate in the Laurel District. Anasa Yoga, located at 4232 MacArthur Blvd, is a black-owned studio that offers classes and community events.
