Plans for the first Atlanta Mini Maker Faire are well underway, and the deadline for submissions (July 10th) will be upon us before we know it. Maker Faire is a celebration of all things DIY; this event is a local version of the larger Bay Area, Detroit, and New York Maker Faires put on by Make Magazine and O’Reilly Media. Just like the “big” Maker Faires, there will be cool things to see, interesting people to talk to, and fun things to play with.

The event is free to attend and exhibit at, and is funded by sponsors. So, why not join the local and regional Makers of the South at the Atlanta Mini Maker Faire on September 10th, on Georgia Tech’s Campus? You can find additional information on the event and our Entry Form (it’s on the “Participate” page) at our website,

    Aargghhh!  Atlanta is close enough to be tempting, but still too far away.  Any chance Maker Faire or Mini-Fair might come back to Texas?

    Been looking forward to a Maker faire within driving distance…. will be there with the Lawnbot400 from Make issue 22 and a few other bots (including a DIY segway).
