Koreatown Northgate (KONO) - Home
A lively and diverse business district on Telegraph Avenue between 20th and 35th streets in Oakland, CA.

KONO is the neighborhood that defines the new Oakland. This up and coming community has become the “unofficial” hub of arts and culture in the Bay Area, featuring the Oakland First Fridays Festival and Art Murmur Gallery Walk, which draws over twenty thousand attendees each month. Oakland has the second highest per capita of artists in the country and KONO is their home base. Along and with the arts, KONO features Oakland’s most popular craft beer gardens and pubs. Visit KONO to see what all the Oakland hype is about.
This uniquely Oakland event draws 20,000 people to the area. Be sure to check it out.
