The Bridge Yard

Oakland Venue Management professionally manages The Bridge Yard.

Since its award-winning restoration in 2019, The Bridge Yard has become one of Oakland’s most iconic event venues.
With panoramic waterfront views of Oakland and San Francisco, an iconic light-filled indoor space, and an outdoor courtyard with a stage, seating and elevated viewing deck, from weddings to parties to trade-shows, trainings and more, The Bridge Yard makes the perfect canvas for your next event.

We Are Community Builders and Creative Placemakers

Oakland Venue Management (OVM) has been producing a wide variety of events and managing numerous projects throughout Oakland since the company launched in 2008. We are more than your typical event management company – we are highly experienced professional placemakers.

We pride ourselves in working with organizations whose work aligns with our goals, focusing our collective efforts towards sustaining and creating a vibrant, thriving, and inclusive Oakland.


Our founders have successfully developed their experience in property management, rental sales and marketing, event management, and project management working to activate public spaces, transform blighted lots, activate vacant buildings, and engage our community.
