Seattle Mini Maker Faire
See. Make. Break. Share. Repeat.
Maker Faire, hailed as the "Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth," is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness—and a celebration of the maker movement: people not just hungry to talk about the next big thing, but to make it!
Guests are invited to get their hands dirty and try out amazing projects through exhibits, hands-on activities, demonstrations, performances, and talks that blend art, engineering, science, and technology. It’s a vibrant gathering of innovative minds, and the perfect opportunity to learn as well as share!
