Goblin Jamboree

Our annual Halloween festival, Goblin Jamboree is fun for the whole family with hands-on themed programs and activities. 2018 Goblin Jamboree was inspired by the Wild West ghost towns where cowboys once swapped spooky stories around a campfire.

Proceeds from Goblin Jamboree support the Bay Area Discovery Museum’s mission to transform research into early learning experiences that inspire creative problem solving.
