The Downtown Berkeley Association is excited to announce the 2023 Front Row Arts Festival is returning for its second year, and our 2023 festival is bigger and better! This FREE family event takes place July 22, from 11am to 7pm, and features live music, food, activities, vendors and performances in collaboration with some of the top names in the Bay Area Performing Arts and music scenes.
The Front Row Arts Festival is produced thru a joint effort by the DBA and many of Downtown Berkeley’s Arts organizations including The Berkeley Rep, The Freight & Salvage, The Back Room, The Marsh Theatre, The California Jazz Conservatory, The UC Theatre, The Aurora Theatre, and the Berkeley Symphony. With two stages, food trucks, vendors, community booths and activities all along Shattuck Avenue and in the Downtown Plaza, this is shaping up to be a stellar day.
