About the Asheville Mini Maker Faire:

2019 is the inaugural year for the Asheville Mini Maker Faire, and we're excited to see what Asheville has!

The Asheville Mini Maker Faire will be an opportunity for attendees to come see (and touch!) some of the amazing projects makers from across the region have been building – from hobbyist makers working in their garage to students (elementary and up) and faculty at local schools and colleges/universities as well as entrepreneurs and professional makers.  There will be a heavy emphasis on projects that are interactive and that will engage visitors of all ages with a goal of not just educating but also entertaining and inspiring potential makers young and old.

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.
