Second Annual Kalispell Mini Maker Faire Seeking Exhibitors

Kalispell_MMFBack by popular demand, the Kalispell Mini Maker Faire will return February 28, 2015, at Flathead Valley Community College. Sponsored by FVCC and ImagineIF Libraries, Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, do-it-yourselfers, hobbyists, engineers, scientists and artists. 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 available at www.kalispellminimakerfaire.com and must be submitted electronically by 5 p.m. on February 6, 2015. Preference will be given to makers who can teach skills through hands-on activities and/or demonstrate unique skills or crafts.

 

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, Calif., in 2005. Seven years later, the San Mateo Maker Faire featured more than 800 makers with nearly 110,000 people in attendance. The World Maker Faire in New York has grown in four years to more than 500 makers with 55,000 attendees. Community-driven Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the world. Now in its second year, the Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.
