Mark your calendars!
23rd Annual Oakland Heritage & Wildlife Festival
November 14, 2020
In November, we will celebrate our community’s natural and cultural history at a day of free family fun that supports our non-profit Oakland Nature Preserve. At this year’s Oakland Heritage & Wildlife Festival, activities will include historical, cultural, and wildlife presentations, a silent auction, musical entertainment, children’s activities, food, numerous vendors, and much more.
Our musical entertainment headliner is the Ron Carter Trio. Ron Carter is a legendary jazz bassist who has performed all over the world and recorded over 2,500 albums. He began his career in the early 1960s, honing his signature style of harmonic and rhythmic bass lines that are rich in detail, pure in sound and technically impressive.
HAPCO Music Foundation is hosting the jazz trio’s performance, which is presented in collaboration with Pappy Martin Legacy Jazz Collective and Tennessee Valley Jazz Society and supported by Presenter Consortium for Jazz, a program of Chamber Music America, funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
