Having a Pop-Up in Oakland

Oakland is a lovely place to host Pop-Ups. With 20+ spaces available for rent in neighborhoods across the city, you can find just the space you imagined at your budget.

Since planning Pop-Ups is different in every city, here are a few things to keep in mind as you go:

Having a Pop-Up in Oakland costs an average of $154 per hour for the venue. You can find smaller spaces (13 people or less) for closer to $98 and larger spaces (38 or more) run about $593 per hour.

Most Pop-Ups get started between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. and run 6 hours 30 minutes in length. pop up retail spaces in Oakland tend to run slightly larger than average with 26 attendees.

You can find just about any type of space in Oakland, but the most popular for Pop-Ups are loft venues and restaurants. We’d guess there are a few of both in the West Oakland neighborhood, seeing that it’s the reigning hot-spot for pop up retail spaces.

Oakland Peerspace hosts have welcomed 6100+ people into their pop up retail spaces with an average review of 4.9 stars across 171 reviewers. 96% of guests said they would book again.
