If Maker Faire is a gathering of people who make awesome stuff and Portland’s crafty hobbyist culture motivates a lot of people around here to make cool stuff, then it stands to reason that Portland should have some kind of Maker Faire, here, right?
Maker Faire is a weekend filled with an incredible variety of exhibits, talks, demonstrations, and performances bridging arts, crafts, science and engineering—many of them hands-on and all of them engaging. Maker Faire is a reflection of our community at its very best.
If you (or someone you know) would like to participate in the Portland Mini Maker Faire you can submit an application on the OMSI website. Entries can be submitted from individuals as well as from groups, such as hobbyist clubs and schools. We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things.
But you’ve got to hurry. Applications are due August 5 at 11:59PM.
For more information or to apply, visit Portland Mini Maker Faire.
