2017 Mini Maker Faire Launches

The kids are all right. Coast secondary school students responded enthusiastically for a call for submissions to illustrate this year’s Mini Maker Faire theme, “RE” (as in: re-use, re-pair, re-make, re-cycle…) Faire organizers selected the playful graphic created by Chatelech’s Anais Bayle, pictured above with Faire Co-executive Producer Bryan Cramer.

The 3rd Annual Mini Maker Faire, set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday May 28 at Gibsons’ Dougall Park, will celebrate the collaborations and creations of over 65 CoastMakers members and their business and non-profit organization partners. Now proudly part of the global Maker Faire movement, CoastMakers are stoked. With inspiration from ‘super-makers’ and the kids’ enthusiasm and out-of-the-box concepts, it’s going to be a crazy, fun and interesting family-friendly afternoon.

Makers of all ages are invited to share their inventions, creations, repurposing, wisdom and more. Show us how to improve our world! Register online

Corporate sponsors are makers too!

They help make the Faire a reality! Sponsors receive generous and very visible recognition on event advertising, at the Faire site and on the website. And the appreciation and gratitude of the young makers? It’s priceless.
