Welcomes you to our 2017 Prince George Mini Maker Faire Page!

What is Maker Faire?

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, projects.

We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Glimpse the future and get inspired!

About Our Maker Faire

 

The 3rd Annual Prince George Mini Maker Faire will be happening Saturday, September 30th, 2017 | 10am-3Pm, in and around Two Rivers Gallery, the Canada Games Plaza and the Prince George Library. As a community-focused event, the goal of PG Mini Maker Faire is to celebrate the skills and ideas present in our Northern community, encourage dialogue and cooperation between a diversity of Makers, and inspire lifelong learning through the principles of make, create, craft, build, and play. The exciting day presents participatory community-focused and family-friendly showcases and activities and is free for all to attend.

With Northern BC being home to a highly diverse range of do-ers, skill sets, resources and pioneering mindsets, we are encouraging all types, ages and levels of Makers to participate in a celebration of the Maker Movement. We are calling for all Makers: tech enthusiasts, artists, crafters, homesteaders, scientists, garage tinkerers, performers, Do-it-yourselfers, designers, innovators & inventors-in-the-making – from all ages, backgrounds and skill levels and in any and as many forms as there may be! If this sounds like you or someone you know then the Mini Maker Faire is calling!

Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine.  It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.  Read more on Maker Faire history, the Maker Movement, as well as how to start a Maker Faire or a School Maker Faire where you live.
