Shasta County Mini Maker Faire

The Shasta County Mini Maker Faire is a chance for our North State California counties to celebrate its local makers.  It is a family-friendly event that celebrates the creativity of individuals, students, educators, innovators, and businesses in the community. Mini Maker Faire allows creators to showcase their work to the community, while the public comes to enjoy interactive experiences, connect with like-minded people, and be inspired. Maker Faire supports passionate innovation, collaboration, and hands-on doing as a way of experiencing the world.

Sensory Hour

We are proud to open our Museum doors with lights dimmed, minimal sounds, and a relaxed atmosphere. Sensory Hour is an exclusive event for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families to experience the Museum. Our goal is to make Sensory Hour a comfortable environment for children with a variety of sensory differences. Our trained staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you have, and if necessary, direct you to a quiet space that provides a chance to cool down and take a break.

This program is free, however pre-registration is required and space is limited. For more information and to register, please call 530-242-3108.
