Alameda’s first-ever mini Maker Faire brought crowds of creators, do-it-yourself enthusiasts, businesses, artists and crafters to Ranger Avenue on Alameda Point for a gathering of creative people of all sorts. The event primarly focused on making things that exist in the physical environment through technology or more traditional methods.
The Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of spirited maker culture, showcasing local do-it-yourselfers, scientists, designers, tinkerers and artisans that will return to Alameda Sunday, Aug. 11, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Alameda Point (Saratoga Street and West Ranger Avenue)
Attendees will experience interactive exhibits and be inspired by the creativity and innovation of the local maker community. Last year’s Faire attracted more than 65 exhibitors and 2,500 attendees, and this year’s Faire will have even more exhibits and attractions.
