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!
Prince George’s Mini Maker Faire is back! Join us on Saturday, September 30, from 10am – 3pm for a day of Show and Tell, all grown up and mashed together with elements of science fair, craft fair and inventions. Mini Maker Faire showcases the amazing work of all sorts and ages of Makers — anyone who embraces the do-it-yourself spirit and enjoys making things. At Maker Faire, these Makers will be sharing what they do and inspiring others to become Makers, as well.
Taking over Canada Games Plaza, as well as Two Rivers Gallery and parts of the downtown Prince George Public Library, Makers will be showcasing tech projects, artwork, soap making, textile and fibre work, Lego construction, woodworking and more.
There will also be a hands-on component for visitors wanting to try out some of these activities themselves. Create some music with our percussion bike, solder a badge with blinking lights, learn how technology can empower people with disabilities, use an augmented reality sandbox to build different landscapes, take part in design challenges, listen to stories and create some poetry.
Admission to the Faire is free, but you may still want to bring some cash, as some stations will be selling their made-by-hand projects that you won’t find anywhere else. In addition, we’ll have food vendors on hand, should your stomachs start to grumble while you wander through the Faire. We’ll also have live entertainment throughout the day and presentations by some of our Makers… and those are free, like the rest of the Faire.
So come one, come all, to the third annual Prince George Mini Maker Faire. See it… try it… be inspired!
