Did you know there is a Mini Maker Faire in Camden? The Maker Faire committee is seeking Makers for the 2017 Midcoast Mini Maker Faire, to be held in the Camden Amphitheatre on Saturday, September 9, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. The Faire is hosted and produced by staff and volunteers of the Camden Public Library. The midcoast Maker Faire is a gathering of not only innovators and tinkerers, but also artists, do-it-yourselfers, craftspeople, and performers, in short, any and all “makers” of all ages. Over the past several years, the Midcoast Mini Maker Faire has hosted homemade cars, power-assisted bicycles, underwater robots, arduinos, a solar-powered merry-go-round, lego robots, cyanotypes, giant bubbles, and a full-scale camera obscura.
The Maker Faire is geared towards visitors of all ages and is a family-friendly event. The Faire will provide non-commercial makers a free exhibit space with a table, chairs, power if needed, and wifi. Everyone is encouraged to think of themselves as a Maker and to come for the show! Application can be made online at www.midcoastmakerfaire.com. The Maker Faire is the Greatest Show and Tell on earth — a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. The Midcoast Mini Maker Faire has a place for everything from hands-on to high tech.
Do you have a creative, innovative project you would love to share with the community? We invite you to apply for this year’s annual Midcoast Mini Maker Faire. The Maker Faire is a hands-on festival intended to inspire the current and future generations of makers and entrepreneurs. The Midcoast Mini Maker Faire is sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank. Generous support is also provided by Knox Machine Company.
