A TASTE OF OAKLAND: OUR VISION
 
A Taste of Oakland is an event series that showcases and highlights the offerings of restaurants, retailers and galleries located in Oakland's neighborhood commercial districts. The mission of the founding partners -- two Oakland natives, Helen Wyman (of Oakland Events) and Lamont Dawson -- is to promote local businesses, highlight Oakland's assets, change perceptions of Oakland, build a sense of community between the residents and the business community and showcase the culinary revolution that has become prominent in the food industry, establishing Oakland as a culinary destination. Our vision is to collaborate and partner with existing organizations to establish neighborhood events such as the Uptown Block Party throughout Oakland in order to build brand recognition, establish relationships and generate revenue laying the foundation for a weekend long large scale event similar to A Taste of Chicago, which is a major economic boost and tourist destination for the city.
