About DTLA'S Mini Maker Faire:

With the DTLA Mini Maker Faire, Los Angeles is getting its first ever official Maker Faire, joining a global network of Maker Faires spanning 35 countries. It follows the "big" Maker Faire model of celebrating invention, creativity and resourcefulness, but is much smaller in scale, especially this first year.

The Los Angeles Public Library is the proud host of the DTLA Mini Maker Faire, which will take place at the gorgeous and historic Central Library in downtown Los Angeles (otherwise known as DTLA).

Follow the development of the DTLA Mini Maker Faire on LAPL's Twitter @LAPublicLibrary, Instagram @lapubliclibrary, and Facebook page.

About Maker Faire:

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.

Maker Faire Logo

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2016 celebrated its eleventh annual show with some 1300 makers and 150,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in five years to 900+ makers and 90,000 attendees. Thirty-one larger scale Maker Faires occur in cities around the world—Detroit, Atlanta, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shenzhen to name a few— and over 150 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced in the United States and in 34 other countries around the world.
