A Pop-Up Event Blooms in West Oakland, Food Trucks in Tow

Peralta Junction, a new pop-up event kicking off this weekend in a vacant lot at the intersection of West Grand and Mandela Parkway, transcends easy categorization: It’s a three-month experimental art installation. It’s the site of a 1920s-style traveling carnival. It’s an outdoor performance space, an artisan retail market, and — of particular interest to What the Fork — a weekly gathering of mobile food vendors.

During the project’s grand opening weekend, the site will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Subsequently, the event organizers will host kid-friendly after-school workshops on Thursdays and Fridays, Thursday night community movie nights, and a variety of other community events and performances on Friday nights.
