Mini Maker Faires are independently produced, community based, and smaller in scale than our flagship fairs, but they are still big fun with plenty mind-blowing exhibits.

Three Mini Maker Faires will grace us this weekend:

And there is a whole range of fairs coming up through the end of September:

Participate! Here are fairs with active and open Call for Makers:

Last but not least, here’s a look at the recent Montreal Mini Maker Faire by Richard Burman.  Richard asks a range of makers the very pertinent question, “Why is it important for you to MAKE?”
