What is the Eat Real Festival?

The Eat Real Festival is a three-day long celebration of delicious, locally-sourced foods taking place September 21 - 22, 2019 at Jack London Square in Oakland, CA. Eat Real combines a state fair, a street-food festival, and a block party to create a celebration of good food. At the Eat Real Festival, participants learn where food comes from, who grows it, and how to make it. Eat Real Festival attendance is 100% free of charge, all food is affordable, and incorporates delicious, regionally-sourced, and sustainably-produced ingredients. This year, the Festival will support Baykeeper. Since 1989, Baykeeper has advocated for the health of San Francisco Bay. We use science and clean water laws to improve habitats and communities reliant on a thriving Bay ecosystem.


What do volunteers do?

Grab a friend (or a group of friends!) and register for a fun-filled day on the waterfront, slinging drinks, serving samples, greeting guests and supporting a great cause. Even the on-stage participants including DJs, musicians, performers and demonstrators volunteer their time and talent to our event for the love of the community and the desire to support a healthier, more sustainable food system. Every year, over 500 volunteers come together to make this event possible, thanks to you!
