This third year of Austin Mini Maker Faire will be held at Travis County Expo Center on Saturday, May 3 and will continue an annual festival to make, create, learn, invent, craft, hack, recycle, build, think, play, and be inspired by science, technology, engineering, arts, music, and crafts. We are seeking sponsors to help grow this DIY extravaganza in our community. Over a hundred Makers and thousands of attendees of all ages will participate in a day of exciting exhibitions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities for all ages while enjoying interesting presentations/speakers, live music, and visual/performing arts.
In 2013, Austin Mini Maker Faire took place at the Palmer Events Center and attracted:
More than 150 Makers in over 60 maker booths;
More than 4000 ticket purchases by individuals and families;
Adult Makers from the fields of engineering, architecture, robotics, crafts, environmental sustainability, and the arts
Youth Makers involved in robotics, technology design, and more
In 2014, Austin Mini Maker Faire aims to attract twice as many Makers and 8000+ visitors through local, regional, and national advertising; representation at affiliated events; newspaper and radio interviews; and word-of-mouth promotion of the event. We are conducting extensive outreach to attract Makers who are technologists, artists, musicians, enthusiasts, and crafters, and will be encouraging students, schools, and youth groups to participate.
