2017 East Bay Mini Maker Faire | Oakland

Sunday, October 22, 2017 - All Day | Cost: $18.84*
*Tickets are for advanced purchase.

Studio One Art Center | 365 45th Street, Oakland, CA



The East Bay returns for its 8th Year in 2017 on October 22.

Celebrate the DIY spirit at the East Bay Mini Maker Faire where you can meet over 150 inspirational, local makers showing and sharing 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.

2017 East Bay Mini Maker Faire
Sunday, October 22, 2017 | 10 am to 5 pm
Park Day School, 360 42nd St., Oakland

The East Bay Mini Maker Faire follows the “big” Maker Faire model of celebrating invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, but is smaller in scale (150+ 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.

FunCheap says: This event is a little pricier than we’re used to, but we think it’s pretty amazing and brimming with creativity, so it’s worth the splurge.
