* Hoopla (noun): action, activity, brouhaha, bustle, buzz, commotion, drama, elation, emotion, excitation, feeling, fever, fireworks, flurry, frenzy, furor, fuss, heat, hubbub, hullabaloo, hysteria, passion, racket, rage, ruckus, rumpus, stir, thrill

I put on real Badenov events: street festivals, crafts fairs, parades, business socials – all kinds of theme parties. I’ve got the scoop on the local scene, where to go and what to do -- real Mr. Know-It-Alls. We promise to Do-Right by you!

Yes, my real last name is Bullwinkel! It’s been a ton of fun my whole life and I bring that along to any event that I produce. I’ve been throwing parties since I was a kid – ours was the house where all of the parties happened in town, until our pool caved in from too many people doing cannonballs off the side one night!

It is not a fractured fairy tale that I was a professional ballerina for many years. So I bring an artistic sensibility to every event I produce. My biggest thrill is providing a format so your guests can be creative in a way they never thought possible. This makes my events a big hit! And memorable!

Business District Marketing & Special Events Management

I can help you market your business district, even if it is in Moosylvania or during Rocky times! I have a background in community and economic development from my time as the Executive Director of a large merchant association in Berkeley and Albany, CA. There, I installed a Business Improvement District and built the Solano Avenue Stroll, the East Bay’s largest street festival. The Stroll was designated a National Local Legacy and is housed in the Library of Congress. I've produced lots of other events, including the 4th of July for the City of Berkeley complete with fireworks. Some of my past and present events include the Berkeley Festival of the Arts, Berkeley Jazz Festival on Telegraph, Pacific Pinball Exposition, Persian New Year Festival, Spice of Life Festival, Berkeley Tree Lighting Ceremony, Berkeley Celebration of Youth Arts, Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival, Dìa de los Muertos, Doof-a-Palooza, Center Street Summer Cinema, Food, Fashion & Wine, Snow Day in the Gourmet Ghetto & the Rockridge & Holidays on Fourth St.

Berkeley Arts & Culture Hotline

If you have an interest in the local Berkeley Arts scene, you can sign up right here on my website for the Berkeley Arts & Culture Hotline (BACHotline), an email service where locals post all kinds of interesting stuff including calls for artists, arty events, art stuff for sale and more.

Non-Profit Fundraising & Press

If you’re a non-profit organization, I can pull a rabbit out of my hat to help you fund raise. I even have mailing labels for sale with over 1,000 local businesses and restaurants plus museums and attractions statewide, or lists of local VIPS to invite to your events, or press lists for your media needs.

So even if your name isn’t Rocky, give a call… make that a moose call so we can really hear it!
