Colorado Springs Mini Maker Faire at Library 21c

Colorado Springs Mini Maker Faire at Library 21c

The world's largest DIY Festival is coming to Library 21c on Saturday, October 18, 2014, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., and it's FREE!

The Colorado Springs Mini Maker Faire takes after the enormously successful Maker Faire in San Francisco, which is in its 9th year and hosts nearly 120,000 visitors in two days. Like the San Francisco event, Colorado Springs Mini Maker Faire celebrates do-it-yourself creativity and tinkering.

A Call for Makers, Performers, and Crafters is open now through September 15. Groups or individuals interested in participating in this inaugural event should complete an application here.

Featuring both established and emerging local "makers," the Colorado Springs Mini Maker Faire is a family-friendly celebration featuring rockets and robots, DIY science and technology, urban farming and sustainability, alternative energy, bicycles, unique hand-made crafts, music and local food, and educational workshops and installations.

This one-day event is a collaborative effort between Pikes Peak Library District and the Colorado Springs Science Center and is a cornerstone of the 2014 Colorado Springs Science Festival.
