Seattle Mini Maker Faire showcases the amazing work of all kinds and ages of makers—anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.
We are currently in the process of contacting applicants, reviewing safety plans, reviewing any required fire permits, and generally doing lots of communication. Applicants will be notified by April 16th. Then we will post a list of all the makers you can expect to see on June 8th and 9th at the second annual Seattle Mini Maker Faire!
While some art or science fairs tend to keep projects behind glass, the Seattle Mini Maker Faire is a hands-on, minds-on event for all ages. Your booth or workshop should engage the public with what it means to really make something—teaching techniques, showcasing tools, and demonstrating both the perfect and not-so-perfect products of your labor.
In addition to adult makers, we received multiple applications from Young Makers (aged 10-17 years) and their adult mentors. Click here to go to our Young Maker page and learn more about this exciting Young Maker program.
