Maker Faire is an annual festival to make, create, learn, invent, craft, hack, recycle, build, think, play and be inspired. Originating in Silicon Valley and engaging over 120,000 people annually, Maker Faire is a multi-generational gathering that is sweeping across the country and around the world. And now it is coming to Denver!
The maker community crosses boundaries of science and art, young and old, craftsmanship and technology, coming together to create the innovation economy. The things we make define us as a society and build our future. The people who invent, create, and make have the power to change the world.
Denver Mini Maker Faire will launch here in Colorado, May 3rd & 4th, 2014, at the National Western Complex with an expected:
- 10-15,000 attendees and Makers
- A life sized fire breathing dragon and artwork like you’ve never seen
- Robotics experiences, the Sound Puddle, SparkFun Electronics and leading edge tech tinkering
- Spinning and weaving, engaging craft projects, and a Nerdy Derby
- Entrepreneurs, inventors, artists, hackers, DIY enthusiasts, vendors and all the lunacy that you’ve come to expect from a Maker Faire.
