Kalispell, Mont.—Back by popular demand, the third annual Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is scheduled for February 27, 2016 at Flathead Valley Community College. Sponsored by FVCC and ImagineIF Libraries, Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is a gathering of tech enthusiasts, do-it-yourselfers, hobbyists, engineers, scientists and artists of all ages. All of these makers come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and share what they have learned through interactive exhibits, hands-on demonstrations and informative presentations.
Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is now accepting applications from makers who would like to exhibit their work at the event. There is no charge to be an exhibitor. The application form is online at www.kalispellminimakerfaire.com and must be submitted electronically by 5 p.m. on February 15, 2016. Preference will be given to makers who can teach a skill through a hands-on activity and/or demonstrate a unique skill or craft.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, Calif., in 2005. In just seven years, the San Mateo Maker Faire grew to feature more than 800 makers with nearly 110,000 people in attendance. Community-driven Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the world. The Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.
