You won’t regret watching this video – a quick recap of the 2013 Midcoast Mini Maker Faire!

About Midcoast Maine Mini Maker Faire:

Our annual  Midcoast Mini Maker Faire will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2016, 11am – 3pm.

At the Camden Public Library and adjacent Amphitheatre, Makers of all types will converge in Camden for a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness – a celebration of the Maker movement. Exhibitors/Makers do not pay for a booth and admission is by donation. This is not an art show or a science fair. It’s an event for people who make things to share them with the community, to celebrate the process of making and learning. This year, food vendors, performers and art installations will join us!

The Midcoast Mini Maker Faire is presented by the Camden Public Library in partnership with Midcoast Magnet, with the help of these sponsors!

The Midcoast Mini Maker Faire is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.

About Maker Faire:

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

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.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2014 celebrated its ninth annual show with some 1100 makers and 130,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Silver Spring, Paris, Rome, Oslo, Trondheim, Tokyo, Newcastle (UK), and Shenzhen are the home of larger-scale, “featured” Maker Faires and over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.

Maker Faire is supported by Make: magazine and Maker Media.
