Hip Hop in the Park 2015

Hey everyone! This year’s Hip Hop in the Park is coming up in three weeks!!! Our headliner is Fashawn, a really dope rapper from Fresno who recently got signed to Nas’ label “Mass Appeal Records” and has an awesome album out called “Boy Meets World”. There’s also going to be food trucks, a b-boy/girl cypher, merchandise, as well as a kid’s tent. And as always, the event is FREE! Please come out and join us on May 2nd, and bring your friends!

Again, this is a free of charge family-friendly event focused on conscious hip-hop in the community. We are featuring many awesome and talented artists including Fashawn, Young Gully, Magna Carda, Breathless, BPos, Kensho Kuma, and Romski! It’s going to be a great time and we hope to see you there!

Hip Hop in the Park is always the first Saturday of May. Please contact us if you are interested in selling food/merchandise on Haste, demonstrating live graffiti art, or helping out in any way. We have a very limited budget and rely on the community to help us throw on this event every year. Thank you for your support 🙂

This event is student-run by the Students For Hip Hop at Cal. You can also message our page or email us at
