Himalayan Fair May. In Live Oak Park. Free; optional $5 donation for raffle ticket that benefits Himalayan charities. This outdoor celebration is put on by the Bay Area’s Tibetan, Nepalese, Indian, and other Himalayan peoples. Founded in 1983 by Arlene Blum, who led the first female expedition up Annapurna and who was part of the 1976 Bicentennial Everest Expedition that set an altitude record for American women, the colorful festival celebrates authentic Himalayan arts, crafts, foods, music, dance, and entertainment.
