The Salsa Sunday returns! The best block party around is happening July 16th with free live music and dancing on Center Street between Shattuck and Oxford.

Salsa Sundays is a series of five block parties held every third Sunday from June through October in the heart of Downtown Berkeley. Each free event is held on a tree lined stretch of Center Street that is home to the Berkeley Art Museum, a half block from the Downtown BART station, a half block from Cal Campus, and just steps away from some of the best food and drinks in Berkeley!

Now in its 4th year, Salsa Sundays has become a highly anticipated summer event that brings together over 2,000 people of all ages from across the Bay including San Francisco and Oakland each month. 

The afternoon starts at noon with free dance lessons from Ruth M. Caspary, then comes DJ Antonio Chavez. Some of the best salsa bands from the Bay Area hit the stage and play all afternoon until 6pm. We'll be pouring beer with our friends from Triple Rock and Drake's Brewing Co.

Join us back in the beer garden from 4:30-8:30pm with another week of Americana Unplugged. Savannah Blu is a Marin based bluegrass five piece has been here a while now and are a staple to the series. Gary, Larry and friends kick the season into high gear with good old, straight ahead California bluegrass!
