Handicapped Parking

Handicapped parking is available.

Public Transportation

Santa Cruz Metro bus #71 stops directly next to Samper Hall on the Cabrillo campus, where the event will be held. Click here to see the route maps and for other information.


Attendees were encouraged to ride bikes or walk to the event! We had plenty of on-site bike parking for their convenience, but asked you to bring your own locks.

Companion Animals

We at the Santa Cruz Mini Maker Faire love our companion animals, and therefore for their safety and well-being please leave pets at home. There are loud noises, many moveable parts and large crowds at the Mini Maker Faire, all of which do not create a safe environment for pets.

Rain Policy

Rain or shine the show went on! Fortunately many of the events were covered or inside. Rain or Shine. No Refunds/Exchanges. Tickets cannot be replaced.

What can I expect?

To have the time of your life! You’ll be surprised and intrigued with every corner that you turn.
