kids pop up art show

I want to book your space for my daughter's Pop up art show. A couple questions...1. What is the bathroom situation? 2. We want to hang a bunch of paintings in a gallery style - Are the walls already white? Can we put a bunch of nails in them? Do we patch them up, or do you? 3. Is there a "backstage" area to stow our tools, etc. 4. What is the parking situation? 5. Can we move the furniture? 6. Can we stick things to the window?

Having a Pop-Up in Oakland

Oakland is a lovely place to host Pop-Ups. With 30+ 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 $144 per hour for the venue. You can find smaller spaces (12 people or less) for closer to $93 and larger spaces (36 or more) run about $500 per hour.

Most Pop-Ups get started between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. and run 6 hours 15 minutes in length. pop up retail spaces in Oakland tend to run slightly larger than average with 24 attendees.

You can find just about any type of space in Oakland, but the most popular for Pop-Ups are loft venues and galleries. 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 3900+ people into their pop up retail spaces with an average review of 5.0 stars across 111 reviewers. 97% of guests said they would book again.
