I had so much fun vending at this event! I did a live painting demo so that people could see my process, and there were so many interesting things to do and see! Here’s some general info about the event, followed by some photos and videos of the event itself.
About East Bay Mini Maker Faire and Park Day School
Sunday, October 21, 2018, from 10 am to 5 pm
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. 1200 makers; 6,000+ people on one day vs. 65,000) and will showcase the wonders of Alameda and Contra Costa counties and beyond! We were one of the first “Mini” Maker Faires when we launched in 2010. Now we’re part of a huge, truly global network of Maker Faires spanning 40+ countries.
The East Bay Mini Maker Faire is fortunate to have Park Day School as its host and sponsor. The event uses Park Day School’s four-acre, “secret garden” campus nestled 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.
