Oaklandish started in 2000 as a public art project designed to illuminate Oakland’s local history and unique cultural legacy. After years of covert multi-media stunts around the Town, the Oaklandish brand of apparel was introduced to help support our ongoing calendar of public events and pro bono work.

Our mission is to spread “local love” by way of our civic pride-evoking tees and accessories, while creating quality inner city jobs for locals, and giving back to the people and places that maintain our city’s trailblazer spirit. So, wear it well. When you rock these roots, you’re representing and supporting Oakland!

A favorite way to think of our park was summed up in San Francisco magazine. Children’s Fairyland, they said, is “as miniature and uncynical as a toddler’s beating heart.” We agree. Children’s Fairyland is, in many ways, a timeless reminder of the joys of standing three-feet tall.

Explore this section to find out more about our famous storybook sets, almost 70-year history, and the dedicated people who make it all possible.

Having a birthday at Fairyland is a real Oakland tradition. For 70 years, childhood memories have been made here. 2020 reservations are now open — book your child’s special day!
