We had so much fun last year, we thought we’d do it again.

Berkeley Spark is a non-profit, fiscally sponsored by Berkeley Partners for Parks, a 501(c)3 organization.

We are a group of social and cultural change makers, tech professionals, designers, inventors and leaders who get together each spring and summer to produce a number of East Bay events, including the Berkeley Spark festival along with community forums, a film series, and more — all focusing on art, innovation, entrepreneurship and community engagement.

The Berkeley Spark festival is a community-based, participant-driven event connecting the greater East Bay and its surrounding communities.  We’re also the place for those who would like to enjoy the Burning Man culture (on and off the playa) and for those heading out to the desert – to pick up clothing, accessories, technology and other essential items.

Vendors: We are still accepting applications from innovation and technology specialists, clothing designers, accessories, jewelers, artists, body products, fair trade, non-profits, and more.  As always, we will feature a thoughtfully curated selection of local independent makers, with a special focus on sustainably and originality… we’d love to hear from you.   Please go to the Vendor’s Market tab on this website or click here.
