2012 10 14 13 36 26 East Bay Mini Maker Faire

The 3rd annual East Bay Mini Maker Faire attracted an enthusiastic crowd this past Sunday.

After experiencing Maker Faire New York two weeks ago, I was eager to check out a scaled-down fair at Sunday’s East Bay Mini Maker Faire. Even though it was smaller in size it had the same exuberant energy as New York. Classic, Nor Cal fall weather made for a special day. Given the East Bay’s large maker community and West Oakland’s art studios/lofts, the event had a strong craft and Burning Man-esque flavor.
