East Bay Mini Maker Fair, A One-Day Event in Oakland, California That Celebrates Invention and Creativity

Dog Heads

The East Bay Mini Maker Faire is a one-day family-friendly event that’s a scaled-down version of the larger World Maker Faire, but holds the same values around celebrating inventiveness, creativity and learning.

Only “Mini” in relationship to the “Monster” Maker Faire Bay Area, our Oakland show welcomes over 7,000 people to a one-day extravaganza of East Bay (and beyond) talent…A Maker Faire is about celebrating learning and doing – not just the finished and perfect end product. It’s a place to show projects, and share what we’re learning with others. Featuring both established and emerging local “makers,” the East Bay Mini Maker Faire is a family-friendly celebration featuring rockets and robots, digital fabrication, DIY science and technology, urban farming and sustainability, alternative energy, bicycles, unique hand-made crafts, music and local food, and educational workshops and installations.

The event takes place on Sunday 19th October from 10am-5pm at the Park Day School – 360 42nd St (at Opal) in Oakland, California. Tickets are available through Eventbright. The call for “makers” is still out and late applications are still being accepted.
