The 2019 Mini Maker Faire is coming to town!

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show their hobbies. It is a showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. Demonstrations, hands-on activities, and fun for the whole family are a few of things you can expect when you visit the Faire. It’s an interesting way to see science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in motion.

It is the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness is the Mini Maker Faire. Glimpse the future and get inspired! Mark your calendar; more details are to come.

Tyler Mini Maker Faire is accepting Maker applications if you would like to display your projects at Makers of all ages and skills are encouraged to apply. The Faire showcases a variety of Makers including: technology, arts, hobbies, sustainability, and food and beverage. There is no cost to participate, unless you plan to sell your products.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect, and grow this community.
