The 8th Annual RI Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of do-it-yourself ingenuity, innovation, and STEAM education.
What is do-it-yourself? It’s a movement to bring science and technology normally cooped up in private labs to the masses, to embed hands-on creativity in American culture, and to inspire a new generation of makers and innovators, scientists and engineers, artists and designers, and dreamers and thinkers. Makers from all around the country are calling for a new approach to technology: one that lets you tinker, improve, explore and understand. The Maker Faire celebrates and promotes this approach.
In the spirit of maker culture, the RI Mini Maker Faire showcases local ingenuity, demonstrates skills, and promote creative approaches. Featuring hands-on making, building, and hacking— as well as crafting, garage technology, arts & creativity for sale, and demonstrations—this Mini Maker Faire festival is happening in the state where the American Industrial Revolution began.

Celebrate New England D.I.Y: Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire features hands-on making, building & hacking, crafting, garage technology, arts and creativity for sale, and robots, right alongside of AS220 Foo Fest in Providence, RI.
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 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.
