Learn a new skill, discover a new hobby, and expand your mind at the Inspiration Station at La Mesa Oktoberfest! New in 2017, we are bringing you a ton of interactive and educational workshops and speakers under one roof (well…tent) for three days of FREE inspiration, education, and fun! Advanced sign-ups are not required for lectures. Pre-registration is encouraged for workshops but if space is not filled we will accept registration at the event on a first come, first serve basis. Workshops will have extra space available for those wanting to watch but not hands-on participate. There may be a small fee associated with materials costs for crafting workshops (indicated below).
