Event: The East Bay Mini Maker Faire is a one-day family-friendly event that’s a scaled-down version of the larger World Maker Faire, but holds the same values around celebrating inventiveness, creativity and learning. The event takes place on Sunday 19th October from 10am-5pm at the Park Day School – 360 42nd St (at Opal) in Oakland, California. Tickets are available through Eventbright. The call for “makers” is still out and late applications are still being accepted.
