After you're done finding Easter eggs and chasing bunnies, head to Jack London Square in Oakland for Taste for Artisans on Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m. Presented by East Bay Express, the Western-inspired event celebrates local vendors, from artists who will be selling their work to tastings from family farms, local brewers and winemakers. Admission is free, with swag bags for the first 200 guests and free bicycle valet.
Events include live art and craft-making, live music, mechanical bull riding, cream corn wrestling, pie eating contests and square dancing lessons. Bring unused art supplies as a donation, and receive a free raffle ticket. The supplies and event benefit the Drawbridge Foundation, which provides art programs for children.
