*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 08/26/2022
Reconnect with family, friends, and community at OMCA over delicious local eats by Off the Grid creators and exciting Museum offerings. As California moves toward a new post-pandemic normal, OMCA and OTG are excited to provide a gathering place for the public to foster community and deepen connections with each other. These events are family-friendly and free to attend. To enjoy the Museum galleries, please purchase your tickets. Food and beverages are available for purchase at the food trucks and at the OMCA bar.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

Inspired by the community’s stories of resilience and reconnection over the past two years, Friday Nights at OMCA has been reimagined as a more intimate experience where visitors can break bread and enjoy weekly programming that dives deeper into themes that drive OMCA’s mission like community, belonging, and connection.

  • Every Friday beginning at 5 pm, grab dinner from Off the Grid food trucks parked on 10th St between Oak and Fallon Streets.
  • Beer and wine will be available for sale.
  • After grabbing a meal from a wide and weekly changing menu of culinary creations, head to the OMCA Gardens where you’ll find picnic tables and blankets to enjoy your local eats.
  • Play lawn games such as Giant Jenga and Giant Connect-Four, and enjoy weekly rotating Museum programming that will inspire you to move, make, mingle, and more!
  • OMCA's galleries of California Art, California History, and California Natural Sciences will stay open until 9 pm on Fridays. Please purchase advance tickets below.
