3rd Annual Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire

Featuring both established and emerging local makers, the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire is a family-friendly celebration featuring robotics, DIY science and technology, sustainability and alternative energy, bicycles, unique hand-made crafts, local food and educational installations. Visitors will see installations from the GR Makers, the Geek Group and other local West Michigan inventors, innovators and tinkerers.

Maker Faire combines local science fair and county fair with something entirely new to create an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, hobbyists, engineers, students and commercial exhibitors. All of these makers come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

The call for makers is now open through July 22. Any groups or individuals interested in participating in this inaugural event should complete the application at makerfairegr.com. Makers and creators will be listed and featured on makerfairegr.com throughout the summer.

*Free admission for Grand Rapids Public Museum members (tickets required).
