Thanks for coming!

The 10th Annual East Bay Mini Maker Faire was held on Sunday, October 27, 2019, and it was a great day!

Park Day School was excited to host the 10th annual East Bay Mini Maker Faire on our campus. Information on the 2020 EBMMF will be posted here so watch this space and get ready to mark your calendars the biggest and best one yet!


For those of you engaged in the Maker community, you may have heard that Maker Media Inc. is in the process of restructuring. Despite changes at Make we want to assure you that the East Bay Mini Maker Faire is still going strong. Park Day School volunteers and staff have produced every East Bay Mini Maker Faire for the past ten years and are deep into planning this year’s big event to make it the best one ever.


We can’t wait to welcome you through the gates for the 11th annual East Bay Mini Maker Faire!

About East Bay Mini Maker Faire and Park Day School

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.

What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.

We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Glimpse the future and get inspired!
