Agency & Event Information: The Bay Area Discovery Museum’s unique programs feature hands-on art, science and environmental exhibitions, performances, special events, cultural festivals and ongoing educational curricula… all with a focus on fun!  More than 300,000 children, parents, and educators from throughout the Bay Area visited the museum in 2009 with one-quarter of those coming through free or subsidized admission and education programs.

This fall, the Discovery Council – the Bay Area Discovery Museum’s all-volunteer fundraising auxiliary – will hold its Annual Goblin Jamboree on October  15th and 16th.  This much-anticipated Halloween festival, now a Bay Area tradition, each year welcomes close to 5,000 people to our campus, transformed into a Spooktacular and Faboolous Halloween carnival.  Clad in costumes, children enjoy train rides, live performers, games, activities, a haunted house, pumpkin patch, petting zoo and more!  In addition to being a terrific celebration for the community, this event is a major fundraiser for the museum: all proceeds benefit the Museum’s educational programs, exhibitions and community outreach programs.
