Nomad Presents, along with The SEVA FoundationLagunitas Brewery, and CBCB Berkeley, Free to the public the 2nd Annual Berkeley Shakedown Street Festival in Downtown Berkeley, California! On September 12 and 13, 2015 we honor The Grateful Dead and 50 years of music that has inspired generations. Berkeley Shakedown Street Festival and Special Guest Wavy Gravy welcome fellow Deadheads far and wide to come down, find a spot in the grass, dance a little and enjoy two full days of Grateful music.

Our friendly volunteers will be serving Lagunitas Brewery on tap and will also offer local wines by the glass. A select variety of food vendors will have non-alcoholic beverages available along with veg and non-veg options.

Our Grateful Arts & Crafts Village will have handmade arts, apparel, glass art, jewelry, healing arts, antiques, patches, pins, batik, tie dyes and much, much more!

A short walk from the beautiful UC Berkeley Campus, Downtown Berkeley BART, Telegraph Avenue and The Gourmet Ghetto, The Berkeley Shakedown Street Festival is a weekend destination and an experience not to be missed! Berkeley Shakedown Street Festival benefits The SEVA Foundation, who works tirelessly fighting blindness around the world. 

With the support of our friends and sponsors, the bands, the crew, the volunteers, and (most importantly) our Deadhead family, we are privileged to bring this event to beautiful Downtown Berkeley for the second year!
