There are a large number of food vendors which apply to Oakland First Friday. Applying does not mean you are automatically in the event, rather it means that you are now in a very comprehensive process where you will be rotated into and out of the event as spaces become available and the balance of food types have been achieved. We would love to invite everyone in right away, but its simply not possible at this point. Please be patient with us during this process. Thanks - Oakland First Fridays Staff
