The Alameda Chamber of Commerce Island Jam has become a Father’s Day Tradition embraced by patrons and sponsors alike. The 2017 Island JAM, coming June 17 and 18, will kick off summer for thousands of fair-goers who long for the sights and sounds of the Islands. The Island theme and county fair atmosphere distinguishes the Island Jam from the other ho-hum street fairs, attracting people from all over the Bay Area.
Dad’s Day takes center stage along Alameda’s historic Webster Street with six full blocks of unique cultural experience including carnival rides, arts and crafts, food trucks and live music on two stages from Lincoln to Buena Vista. Carnival rides, boardwalk games, the Giant Fun Slide, Ferris wheel and more promise to make this a Father’s Day event you’ll never forget.
The 2017 ISLAND JAM will feature fine artists and one-of-a-kind gift ideas from all over the Bay Area. New to this year’s Jam will be the addition of the Business Expo on the Street which will dedicate a full block to showcase the goods and services of Alameda Chamber of Commerce members.
Local libations from Faction Brewing, Rock Wall Wine Company and Rosenblum Cellars will be the perfect complement to the Food Truck Pavilion. Live Island music from Alameda Battle of the Bands winners Soulstice, Latin rock legends Mio Flores, Rafael Ramirez and Internationally acclaimed Josh Jones with his Latin Dub Stars will be the icing on the cake of two full days of entertainment.
One of the most popular features of the event is the Argosy University Community Stage which features up and coming local artists, seasoned local professionals and a variety of community cultural highlights to delight audiences throughout the event.
The ISLAND JAM will bring the spirit of the Islands to the West End of Alameda and transform Webster Street into a Carnival-like atmosphere full of adventure and fun for the whole family. The Alameda Chamber of Commerce invites you to heed the call of Islands and kick off your summer right at The 2017 ISLAND JAM. The Island Awaits!
