Attendance is Free! But you must register for a ticket at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/alameda-mini-maker-faire-2018-registration-44156164276
The Alameda Mini Maker Faire was born out of a desire to celebrate and support Alameda’s growing maker community. At this all-ages event on July 8, makers, DIY enthusiasts, businesses, artists, and crafters will showcase their work. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience interactive exhibits, meet like-minded individuals, and be inspired by the creativity and innovation of the maker community in Alameda and beyond.
This event is brought to you by the City of Alameda, in partnership with the Downtown Alameda and West Alameda Business Associations, and with many thanks to our
flagship sponsor, The General Storehouse at historic Building 8. The General Storehouse is the launchpad for all things creative — including premier kitchens, maker space, and loft style work/live units, which are all currently under construction at Alameda Point.
