The Funhouse Science Fair Returns

Reviving the Magic: The Return of the Funhouse Commons Science Fair

The Funhouse Commons is thrilled to announce the return of their 20th Science Fair on Saturday, April 27th from 12-4 PM. This beloved event has been a tradition since 2001 and showcases the innovative discoveries made by young scientists. After a four-year hiatus, the Funhouse Commons is bringing back this event with renewed energy and passion to engage the community.

All Orcas K-12 students are invited to register their projects for the Science Fair, and community members are welcome to showcase their work in conservation and environmental science. If you’re interested in being a vendor or volunteer at the fair, please reach out to

This year’s Science Fair will have an Earth Day theme, offering free food and drinks, live music, community exhibits, and inspiring projects from our young participants. Every participant will receive an award, with top prizes awarded in elementary, middle, and high school categories. The coveted Richie Moore “Rocket Ship of Wonder” will be presented to the best-in-show projects.

The Funhouse Commons is aiming to raise $5,000 to cover the costs of food, beverages, awards, prizes, and supplies for the event. Volunteers are also needed to help with setup, activities, and cleanup. Your tax-deductible donation and volunteer time are crucial in making this event a success. Join us in ensuring that this Science Fair is a magical experience for everyone involved! Remember, it takes both a village and the Funhouse to create something truly special!
