Join us for our 3rd Mini Maker Faire in Honolulu. Last year we had over 1000 attendees for this one of a kind event.
•A Mini Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.
•Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.
•Maker Faire is primarily designed to be forward-looking, showcasing makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies. But it’s not just for the novel in technical fields; Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
•Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas that we don’t encounter every day.
Attendance is Free! Why sign up for a ticket?
Signing up for a ticket will help us to gauge how many people will be coming and will help us plan our exhibits and interactive displays so that we will have enough materials for everyone to take part and enjoy. We also pre-register everyone to speed up entry to the event.
This year the soldering and Rasberry Pi workshops are already full, but there will be limited opportunities for walk-ins at the soldering workshop. Go to the soldering workshop room on the first floor at 'Iolani's Sullivan Center, and sign-up on site for one of those limited walk-in slots.
Drone Racer-X Circuit (Baseball Field)
Skills Course: This is a timed event where the operator must fly their drone through multiple obstacles. The goal is to complete all challenges in the shortest time.
Speed Course: The race will consist of three laps around the course. At the completion of the last lap the pilot will land on a predetermined landing zone for additional seconds bonus.
If you are interested in volunteering to help out during the event, please sign up for any of the remaining time slots above and we'll send you more details.
What day(s) and hour(s) will the Honolulu Mini Maker Faire be open to the public?
The Honolulu Mini Maker Faire is open from noon to 5 pm on Saturday, June 25th, 2016. Please sign up for an attendee ticket, as well as for any of the workshops/events you plan to attend.

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 held in San Mateo, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth annual show with some 1100+ makers and 145,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Silver Spring, Ottawa, Lisbon, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Newcastle, Hannover, Oslo, Trondheim, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo, and Shenzhen are the home of larger-scale, “featured” Maker Faires. In addition, over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Honolulu.
Maker Faire is supported by Make: magazine and Maker Media.
Make: is the first magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technology projects.
Make: unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages. Make: celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will.
