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!
It’s a wrap!
Our first annual Windsor-Essex Mini Maker Faire was held Saturday February 24, 2018 at St. Clair College.
Thank you to all our makers, exhibitors, performers, volunteers and attendees for making it such a great success!
For an overview of the day, and all participants, please see our Mini Maker Faire Program.
The Windsor-Essex Mini Maker Faire takes after other large Maker Faire events such as Maker Faire Detroit. The Windsor-Essex Mini Maker Faire was a smaller, community-focused event, following the Maker Faire model of celebrating do-it-yourself creativity and tinkering.
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.
