Media Partners are essential for spreading the word about the East Bay Mini Maker Faire. 510 Families has been one of our media sponsors since our inception five years ago and we want to make sure all you families know about their resources.
510Families.com is an online guide to East Bay family fun on a need to know basis. They feature the awesome places and activities (like the Maker Faire!) for kids and their parents along with helpful tips. They have a fun website and helpful newsletter featuring a calendar of events, news and articles and resources for parents, as well as special Summer Camp and Birthday Party guides.
If you’ve been coming to the Faire with kids, you likely have met these ladies. Last year, 510Families got hands-on by parading around in Giant Cardboard Robot garb for fun photo opps, like the one to the left. In other years 510Families joined Sticky Art Lab to make necklaces out of bottle caps….and other times they’ve sponsored craft zones and handed out info about all the coolest things to do with kids in the East Bay.
More important than what they do the day of the Maker Faire though, has been all the ways they show up and get their readers through our gates and helping to raise funds for Park Day School’s scholarship program! Their readers and subscribers always turn out in droves and we are so appreciative!
Thank you 510Families for extending your community and introducing them to our Faire. We hope to keep partnering with you for many years to come.
