About Eugene Mini Maker Faire
The Eugene Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of the Eugene area’s many talented makers: do-it-yourself enthusiasts who put science and technology to work. It will take place on Saturday, June 15th at the Science Factory in Alton Baker Park.

Our mission is to engage, excite, and inspire children toward a lifelong love of learning about science, technology, and humanity. In 2011, over 37,000 visitors of all ages enjoyed our interactive exhibits, full-dome digital planetarium shows and other movies in our Exploration Dome, and public special events.
The museum is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday, 10AM to 4PM, with public Exploration Dome shows on Saturdays and Sundays. We are located in at 2300 Leo Harris Parkway in Alton Baker Park, across from Autzen Stadium and minutes from downtown Eugene and Springfield.

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
The original Maker Faire event was heldin San Mateo, CA and in 2012 celebrated its seventh annual show with some 800 makers and 110,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagshipevent, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), and Tokyo are the home of “featured” Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Eugene.
