Get Ready for the Goblin Jamboree at the Bay Area Discovery Museum

Goblin Jamboree Bay Area Discovery Museum

Hoist your anchor and head to the Bay Area Discovery Museum for its annual Goblin Jamboree fundraiser, the longest running Halloween festival in Marin! Bring your little goblins to this year’s spooky family spectacular on Saturday and Sunday, October 19 and 20 from 10 am to 4:30 pm. 2019's theme is "Set Sail on the Spooky Seas"

Ride a train or a pony, play in the corn pit, take a seat at the Slime Banquet in the captain's quarters, search for buried treasure, meet farm animals, decorate a treasure chest, and enjoy a full schedule of games, activities, and live entertainment. This year's event will feature live musical performances from the Jimbo Trout, Juice and Jelly, the Itty Bitty Brass Band, and CDME. This event is the perfect Halloween party for kids ages 6 months to 10 years.
