Bay Area residents — it’s not too late to catch this year’s Himalayan Fair at Live Oak Park in Berkeley. Today’s the second and last day of the annual celebration of the cultures of Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and North India — and a terrific shopping opportunity.
The food is great — long lines for those soul-satisfying momo dumplings. Also definitely worth
a day trip to Berkeley: the good prices on jewelry, ethnic clothing, silk and pashmina scarves, antique carpets, prayer beads and flags, thangkas, carved wooden gods and goddesses — and hand-made just about everything.
Can’t make it this year? Watch for the 32nd annual Himalayan Fair next year.
Sunday, May18, 2014, 10 am to 5:30 pm, Live Oak Park, 1301 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA. Admission is free.
