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 4th Annual Prince George Mini Maker Faire takes place Saturday, September 22, 2018 in and around Two Rivers Gallery, the Canada Games Plaza and the Prince George Public Library Bob Harkins Branch. We are calling Makers of all types, ages and levels — tech enthusiasts, artists, crafters, homesteaders, scientists, garage tinkerers, performers, do-­it-­yourselfers, designers, innovators & inventors-­in-­the-­making — to participate in Prince George Mini Maker Faire 2018. The exciting day presents participatory community-focused and family-friendly activities and is free for all to attend.

As a community-­focused event, PG Mini Maker Faire celebrates the skills and ideas present in our Northern community. The global phenomenon of Mini Maker Faire’s “greatest show (and tell) on Earth” is a showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a place for people to show what they are making and learning. Our goal is to inspire lifelong learning through the principles of make, create, craft, build, and play.

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.
