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!

Now in its fifth year, Seattle Mini Maker Faire offers tech enthusiasts, crafters, homesteaders, scientists, garage tinkerers, and commercial makers of all ages and backgrounds a platform to share their passion projects with the public—anyone who embraces the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit.

Over the course of the weekend, guests are invited to get their hands dirty and try out the latest inventions, activities, and talks that blend art, engineering, science, and technology from more than 100 makers. It’s a vibrant gathering of innovative minds, and the perfect opportunity to learn as well as share!

We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things, including, but not limited to:
