Now through August 4!
Grand Rapids-The Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire announced today that the Call to Makers for the 4th annual Grand Rapids Maker Faire has been an extended! Makers now have until Friday, August 4 to sign up to showcase what they have invented or are making.
This year’s Maker Faire will be August 19 & 20 held at the Grand Rapids Public Museum and nearby Grand Valley State University’s John C. Kennedy Hall of Engineering.
Maker Faire is looking for participants who enjoy tinkering, hacking, building and designing new technology based inventions. Any groups or individuals interested in participating in the Maker Faire should complete the application at Grand Rapids.MakerFaire.com. Unfinished projects are also welcome at Maker Faire.
The Grand Rapids Maker Faire is a family-friendly celebration featuring tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, hobbyists, engineers, artists, students and commercial exhibitors. Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.
The Faire will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 19 and from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, August 20. Early bird tickets are available for purchase at GrandRapids.MakerFaire.com through Friday, August 4! Museum members receive FREE early bird tickets.
