Home News & Events East Bay Mini Maker Faire
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, or EBMMF, raises funds to support Park Day School’s K-8 program.
For ten years running, the EBMMF took place on the Park Day campus in Oakland’s Temescal District, though in 2020 it took place in cyberspace due to the pandemic. Click here to Meet the Makers from that year’s online EBMMF and see the lineup of presenters, panels, and workshops that were featured.
Our “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). Park Day School has been honored to host the East Bay Mini Maker Faire and shine a spotlight on maker-centered education, and looks forward to a safe return to in-person events in the future.
