Midcoast Mini Maker Faire 2015

Event date/time: September 12, 2015 - 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

The 3rd Annual Midcoast Mini Maker Faire will be held Saturday, September 12, 2015, 11am – 3pm. The Maker Faire motto is “Make, create, recycle, build, think, play, and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science, and technology!” A Maker Faire is a place where inventors, artists, tinkerers, thinkers, and learners share their passions for innovation, creativity, and do-it-yourself activities. It is “the greatest show-and-tell on earth!”

This year the Maker Faire hopes to return to its high-tech roots with several indoor exhibits of concepts and gadgets in the Camden Public Library, to complement the family-friendly, hands-on, and high-tech display under the tent in the Amphitheatre. In the past, the Maker Faire has also sported vehicle displays from bicycles to electric cars, a solar-powered merry-go-round, and a gassification project outdoors on the grounds of the Amphitheatre and Park. This year, a limited number of “commercial makers” will be accepted. For a modest fee of $50 commercial makers will be allowed to sell their wares and will be expected to offer a hands-on activity or demonstration.
