The San Antonio Public Library invites DIYers, coders, performers, knitters and others to share their hobby and craft with others at the second annual San Antonio Mini Maker Faire. The San Antonio Public Library will host the Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, March 26 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Central Library.
Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, the faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. The San Antonio Mini Maker Faire is an exhibition of San Antonio’s vibrant creative community. Makers (individuals and groups) are invited to present their DIY projects, to show their work and to share what they have learned with the rest of San Antonio.
“We were so excited to host our first mini maker faire in October of last year,” said San Antonio Public Library Director Ramiro Salazar. “It was a huge success, with over 30 exhibitors and 1,500 in attendance. It is clear that the maker movement is continuing to grow in San Antonio, and the Library is proud to play a role in providing innovative ways for people to participate.”
Those who wish to participate are encouraged to sign up now. Space is limited. There is no fee to participate. To apply, visitmakerfairesanantonio.com. The call for makers closes January 31.
