Fremont Commemorates 150th Anniversary of “Great Quake” on Hayward Fault with Awareness Event

Earthquake Exhibit Sign

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the “Great Quake” on the Hayward Fault when a 6-foot offset was ripped from Milpitas to San Leandro. On Sunday, October 21, the City of Fremont will co-sponsor an earthquake awareness event with local nonprofit Math Science Nucleus (MSN) and various geological organizations in Central Park from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This free event aims to educate families and the public on earthquake science, history, and preparedness. Featuring the grand opening of the Earthquake Walk, a new series of signs throughout Central Park, attendees will be guided and educated by volunteer scientists and docents. Walking tours will begin at the Performance Pavilion starting at noon and continuing until 3 p.m., on demand.

Fun, informative activities will be offered at three focus zones: Kids Earthquake Zone, Earthquake Science Zone, and Earthquake Preparedness Zone. Families can see a simulated earthquake in action, build houses of blocks and watch them tumble down, and participate in hands-on experiments. Participants will also learn about how to prepare for earthquakes, what to take with them in case of an earthquake emergency, how earthquake insurance works, and more. Live music will be performed at the Performance Pavilion throughout the day.

For more information about the event, please go online.
