The Island Awaits!

The Alameda Chamber of Commerce Island Jam has become a Father’s Day Tradition embraced by patrons and sponsors alike. The 2018 Island JAM, coming June 16 and 17, 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 five full blocks of unique cultural experiences. The Island Jam features carnival rides, arts and crafts, international culinary favorites, and live music from Central to Pacific Avenues. The county fair atmosphere combines the best of entertainment attractions to give Dad two full days of Fun for the Whole Family

Libations from local beer, wine and spirits companies will be the perfect complement to the International Food Favorites. The Twisted Taco Chef Competition brings an exciting new live streaming experience to the 2018 ISLAND JAM. This is your chance to be the judge. Take a bite out of each chef’s “out of the ordinary” taco creation and vote for your favorite twist on the traditional taco.

Live music on three stages will feature David Martin’s House Party, Beatles Tribute Band, Hey Jude, and Jimmy Buffett tribute band, License to Chill. Additional highlights will include music from Third Sol, Mas Mojo and The Black Rock Project and live DJ’s from Cage+Aquarium. Island Music from IMUA Live and Flow Control will be the icing on the cake of two full days of electrifying entertainment.

One of the most popular features of the event is the Chamber of Commerce 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 2018 ISLAND JAM. The Island Awaits!
