The Crucible

After a thorough review of event spaces in the great Bay Area, we have confirmed The Crucible in West Oakland to host the 2015 Anarchist Book Fair, the same site as the 2014 event.

The Bookfair will take place on Saturday, April 25, 2015, and is open to the public from 10 a.m to 6 p.m.

The Crucible is a non-profit arts organization that was founded in 1999 and moved to West Oakland in 2003. It is located at 1260 7th Street, just two blocks from the West Oakland BART station, making it easily accessible from all over the Bay Area.  It is also relatively close by bike, bus, BART, or car to other Oakland venues such as Qilombo and the OMNI, making it possible for concurrent or coordinated events at other venues.

See here for more information on our criteria and process for selecting a venue.

 

Parking

Plentiful bike racks and self-serve bicycle parking are available in the Crucible parking lot.

If you are driving to The Crucible, free street parking is available near the venue. There is no parking on The Crucible property. The Crucible is located in a residential neighborhood. To avoid taking all of the residential parking, we encourage everyone to park on or south of 7th Street (toward 5th Street), and there should be plenty of parking along those streets and side streets between Union and Market.
