Honolulu MiniMakers Faire Answered

The 3rd annual Mini Maker Faire in Honolulu from noon to 5 pm on Saturday, June 25th, 2016.

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned. Attendance is Free!  Free parking is available onsite.
