East Bay Mini Maker Faire Answered
Maker Faire is spreading. I've just become aware of a local school which is holding a "Mini Maker Faire" as a fundraiser. The website with details is at http://ebmakerfaire.wordpress.com/. It's approved by Maker Faire and is being promoted on the main Maker Faire site's calendar. This particular mini fair is a fundraiser for the Park Day School. It will be held on October 24, 2010, at the school itself. Call for participation is now open, and closes on August 31st. If you're local to the San Francisco Bay Area, check it out!
Other Mini Maker Faires going on soon are in Aspen Colorado on July 10, and in Denver Colorado on July 17. I like this trend! And of course the Detroit Maker Faire, which is not mini at all, is coming up on July 31 and August 1, in Detroit. Check out the calendar at http://www.makerfaire.com/.
