Two Bit Circus’ Anti-Gala to feature VR, AR, fire, lasers, robots to bring STEAM programs to youth

Two Bit Circus

Two Bit Circus, the micro amusement park, is the Los Angeles destination for fun games and activities. It features original and unique arcade games, escape rooms called Story Rooms, VR games, free-roaming VR experiences, board game nights, and trivia night. There’s also food and a bar for those who enjoy a night out of drinking. Two Bit Circus Foundation has announced today that it will be hosting the Anti-Gala to celebrate bringing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, art, and Math) programs to youths. Vans, the action sports brand, is sponsoring the event.


The Anti-Gala is a reimagined gala, and it will take place on October 14, 2019, at Two Bit Circus in downtown Los Angeles. It’s going to be quite an event since it will feature multiplayer games, immersive experiences, circus performances, VR, AR, fire, lasers, robots and more.

Entertainment includes:

  • Dunk Tank Flambe the wildest (and hottest) dunk tank on the West Coast
  • Le Petit Cirque
  • Louisiana Love Act
  • Guest DJ Arabian Prince, Founding Member of NWA
  • Super Silent Auction (with a Mime Auctioneer, Nick Kane of LA Clown)
  • DIY Stations
  • Robot Thunderdome

Two Bit Circus is comprised of LA Makerspace,, Trash for Teaching, and STEAM Carnival, and they all share a mission in helping children all over the world with creativity and entrepreneurship. With the four non-profit organizations combined, they’re able to increase efficiency and offer more programs. Proceeds from the sale of Vans Checkerboard products will be donated to help, powered by Two Bit.

“At the Anti-Gala, we will bring together those who want to ensure that kids everywhere have the tools they need to build the world they imagine. Join us as we celebrate those who play, make, create, learn, share and care about the next generation of inventors, doers, dreamers, makers and entrepreneurs,” said Leah Hanes, Executive Director of Two Bit Circus Foundation. “And we’re honored and grateful to Vans, such an influential supporter of our mission, as a sponsor of the Anti-Gala.”
