Announcing the first ever: “Meet Me Downtown” Day in Berkeley!


The first ever MEET ME DOWNTOWN DAY is Sunday March 20, 12noon to 5pm. Six Downtown Berkeley cultural venues will feature a variety of free activities to give you a taste of their amazing facilities and programing. And Downtown restaurants will offer food and drink specials for event visitors.

Explore the stunning architecture and collection of the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive at its new location on Center Street, and watch short films on their spectacular outdoor screen. Experience the newly reopened The UC Theatre with drinks and snacks in its beautiful remodeled interior and be amazed by a demonstration of their Meyer Sound system. Then rediscover showcase Downtown venues with performance workshops at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre, interactive bands at the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, and live music at the California Jazz Conservatory. Plus you can start it off with yoga, a swim, or workout at the Downtown Berkeley YMCA all for free!

Collect MEET ME DOWNTOWN stickers at each of the art and music venues to unlock specials only available that day at participating restaurants. Collect ALL SIX stickers, and register at the Welcome kiosk at Bart Plaza to enter drawing for a Weekend Extravaganza including two nights at Hotel Shattuck Plaza, dinner at FIVE, and tickets to the Berkeley Rep, Freight and Salvage, and BAMPFA.

PLUS enter into a drawing for a free iPad mini by posting your best pictures of you, your friends, and family exploring Downtown Berkeley with #MeetMeDowntownBerkeley on the Meet Me Downtown Facebook page.
