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 Wenatchee Mini Maker Faire

The Wenatchee Mini Maker Faire was started in 2015 under the organization of students from Wenatchee High School and GWATA (North Central Washington’s Technology Alliance). The Wenatchee Mini Maker Faire was the first Mini Maker Faire in the world produced by students and has paved the way for students in other cities to follow.

 

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.
