In February 2019 the Black Joy Parade will fill the streets of Oakland. We welcome all types of individuals and organizations to join the procession and be a part of the 2nd annual Black Joy Parade.

Beyond the need to travel 8 blocks, there is no limit to what you can create! We encourage participants to bring their unique flavor of Black Joy from floats and marching bands, to costumes, dance, art and more. Be creative. Be positive. Be energetic and free!
