Facebook launched its new festival series with a "Cajun Carnival" event last month. Over the coming months, it will host a series of additional festivals, running from 1 to 6 p.m. at 1 Hacker Way in Menlo Park.
The events will include live music, food trucks, farmers markets, craft beer, wine and cocktails, a kid zone and other activities.
Admission and parking are free.
Scheduled events are as follows:
● June 22: "Red, White and Brew," with Americana/country music and craft beer.
● Aug. 17: "Island Vibes," with reggae and summer-themed activities.
● Sept 21: "Bands on the Bayfront," a music festival featuring a range of genres.
● Oct. 19: "Fall Fiesta," with a celebration of Latin culture and Halloween activities.
According to Facebook spokesperson Kyle Gerstenschlager, in 2018, the festival events were attended by over 50,000 people and helped to raise more than $111,000 for local nonprofits in all.
Facebook will also be running shuttles throughout Belle Haven and East Palo Alto to transport residents to and from the festival. Access the shuttle schedule here.
