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 hobbies, experiments, and projects.
Mini Maker Faires are one‐day, family‐friendly events that celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology projects, and the Do‐It‐Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for resourceful, creative people who like to tinker and love to make things. Craftsmen, artisans, performers, homesteaders, crafters, inventors, thinkers, and doers are welcome to apply to be Makers. The Faire will showcase cutting-edge technology such as 3D printing and robotics but also have more traditional trades such as woodworking, fine arts, and sewing crafts.
Makers from hobbyists to large corporations are encouraged to apply because the Faire is about creativity and innovation everywhere. The purpose is to expose attendees to skills they have never seen or tried before, whether they’re cutting edge, centuries-old, or anywhere in between.
The Children’s Museum is the host and producer of this event. The Museum is a leader in our community for youth education and promoting a passion for lifelong learning. In keeping with this tradition, the Bloomsburg Mini Maker Faire theme is “Makers of All Ages.” The Museum is actively recruiting Makers of every age. Makers under 18 will be featured as “Young Makers.”
