What: Have a hobby that you've been dying to try? Want to find out about new trends in the do-it-yourself sphere? Get inspired! The Alameda Mini Makers Faire is here to connect you with local art and the future.
Be a part of Alameda's first inspiration-themed fair. This event is family-focused and whimsical, combining homemade art and interactive exhibits in an outdoor party.
Vendors will include Alameda classics such as The Sewing Room, a business that empowers youth to be conscious consumers and crafters. Sample homemade preserves from Alameda Fruit Co., and applaud the accomplishments of the Otis and Edison Elementary School STEAM club.
In addition to being able to experience classic Alameda cultural highlights in one space, the fair will also provide the opportunity to interact with one-of-a-kind creators. Be sure to check out Gloveopus, an exhibit that allows guests to make their own octopus from old gloves. Maker Peter Gardner encourages you to enthuse your Glovetopus with any personality, be it fun or terrible.
Have a niche interest? This event has got you covered. The Unnecessarily High Five will provide you with the high five of your life. Built from wood and mannequin parts, the exhibit is sure to exhaust you.
Fortunately, you can re energize yourself with wild-fermented root kimchi with sea salt and seaweed brine. Damion Mason will teach you how to make this superfood at home.
There is so much more to explore! This event is whimsical, fun, and also free! However, registration is required. You can request a free ticket here.
