Dec. 26: Kwanzaa Celebration at Bay Area Discovery Museum

OK, so you’re done with Christmas and you need to take the kids somewhere. You don’t want to spend any more money, Lord knows, but you gotta take them some place exciting so they’ll get out of your hair. Of course! In celebration of the first day of Kwanzaa, the Bay Area Discovery Museum offers free admission, all day, on the day after Christmas. All throughout the museum will be art projects inspired by Africa, as well as a Kwanzaa altar in the main lobby. But most importantly, in two separate shows, drummer E. W. Wainwright will lead a jazz combo in the African Roots of Jazz, tracing the lineage of jazz, blues, spirituals and hip-hop with songs, theater and audience participation. Feel the umoja on Saturday, Dec. 26, at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. Fort Baker, 557 McReynolds Road, Sausalito. Open 10am–5pm; performances at 11am and 1pm. Free. 415.339.3900.Gabe Meline
