Born in the Lower Bottoms of West Oakland, Oakhella is an organization that seeks to preserve the cultural fabric of the city while welcoming newcomers into the community. Officially launched in April of 2016 as a micro-music festival, Oakhella has grown into a community organization made up of young professionals who recognize the need to create spaces that encompass the broader culture of Oakland. Well known for its multigenerational appeal, Oakhella and its sister org, Bottom’s Up Community Garden, have produced events that cater to people of all walks of life.
