The annual Park Street Spring Festival is a Mother’s Day weekend tradition in Alameda and the Bay Area. Located along Alameda’s historic Park Street, between Encinal Ave and Lincoln Ave, activities include an exciting mix of arts and crafts, live music, food vendors, beer & wine sales, and a special kids’ area.
With over 150 art and craft vendors and plenty of unique shops, the street festival is also a perfect place to find a gift for Mom. Or maybe you would like to treat Mom to a mimosa and brunch at one of the downtown food establishments.
