Oakland, CA

Please join all manner of pirates, bootleggers and scurvy knaves for Galleon Trade: Ship Launch!,
one hell of a land-locked fund-raising party and art auction.

Galleon Trade is out to make the Pacific Ocean seem smaller, by creating a sustainable template for innovative new kinds of grassroots arts exchange. We’re starting by forging artsy new relationships between California, the Philippines and Mexico. You’re starting by coming to our party, and having some good clean fun, dancing, eating things, drinking things, enjoying/bidding on art.

When and Where’s the Ship Launch?

Event: 6:00-10:00PM
Silent Auction: 6:00-9:00 PM

The Tribune Press Building storefronts

What’s going to happen there?
Oh, goodness. All manner of fun, including

  • Food and Drinks (featuring a number of Filipino dishes, as well as The Galleon, a brand-new East Bay cocktail!):
  • DJs and plenty of other entertainment to keep you occupied on a warm, sweet East Bay summer evening! There will likely be some dancing to be done.
  • A silent art auction featuring affordable work by many of the Galleon Trade artists and their high-powered artist friends!
  • The opportunity to experience the lovely historic Tribune Press Building before its new tenants move in!

How much is all of this fabulous fun?
A mere $10. More, if you’re feeling generous. Less, if you’re in a tight spot.
Food’s on the house, drinks by donation.
