First Fridays at Chabot Space & Science Center bring the Oakland community together to play and discover, highlight diverse voices in S.T.E.A.M. and inspire explorers of all ages. 

Chabot’s First Friday opens the doors for discovery with planetarium shows, telescope viewings and after-hours access to exhibits. Embedded in Redwood Regional Park, the Center is a space for our community to get together, learn, and explore in Oakland’s backyard.

First Friday features a new theme supported by community partners, hands-on activities, workshops, performances, and speakers. With different opportunities every month, the possibilities are endless: Talk to an astronaut. Shake hands with a dinosaur. Practice your pitching with the Oakland A’s and more!

First Fridays at Chabot take place on the first Friday of each month, from 6-10 p.m. Admission is $15 adults, $10 kids/seniors and $5 members.
