Hip Hop in the Park 2015 (Saturday, May 2 @ People’s Park)

Hey everyone! We’re getting ready for our annual Hip Hop in the Park and we hope you are too! We are bringing out a bunch of dope artists from around the Bay Area. There’s going to be food trucks, merchandise, a b-boy/girl cypher, as well as a kid’s tent. Please come out and join us for this awesome event!

Date: Saturday, May 2nd 
Location: People’s Park (2556 Haste Street, Berkeley, CA 94704)

Again, this is a free family-friendly event focused on conscious hip-hop in the community. We are featuring many up-and-coming artists and we’re going to have a great time! Hope to see y’all there!

Hip Hop in the Park is always the first Saturday of May. Please contact us if you are interested in selling food/merchandise on Haste, demonstrating live graffiti art, or helping out in any way. We have a very limited budget and rely on the community to help us throw on this event every year. Thank you for your support :)

This event is student-run by the Students For Hip Hop at Cal. You can also message our page or email us at
