Tinker Time


Come see what’s possible when creativity meets ingenuity. The East Bay Mini Maker Faire showcases the inventions of established and emerging local makers ranging from crafters and homesteaders to tech enthusiasts and scientists. This family-friendly event features urban farming and sustainability, rockets and robots, digital fabrication, DIY science and technology, alternative energy, bicycles, handmade crafts, music, and local food, as well as educational workshops and installations. This year’s Homesteader Stage offers talks on urban heritage turkeys, pickling, wine-making, grey water home conversion, cheesemaking, and more. Info and tickets: here
