East Bay Mini Maker Faire

Oakland, CA 94601

About Us:

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 East Bay Mini Maker Faire follows the "big" Maker Faire model of celebrating invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, but is smaller in scale (170+ makers vs. 900 makers; 6,000+ people on one day vs. 65,000) and will showcase the wonders of Alameda and Contra Costa counties and beyond!

The East Bay Mini Maker Faire is fortunate to have Park Day School as its host and sponsor.  The event utilize's Park Day School's 4 acre, "secret garden" campus snuggled behind Oakland Technical High School in the Temescal district, as well as the adjacent facilities of Studio One Art Center, Oakland's only city-run building and program dedicated to studio arts instruction in a wide range of media for persons of all ages.
