The third annual Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is scheduled for Feb. 27 at Flathead Valley Community College.
Sponsored by FVCC and ImagineIF Libraries, Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is a gathering of tech enthusiasts, do-it-yourselfers, hobbyists, engineers, scientists and artists of all ages. All of these makers come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and share what they have learned through interactive exhibits, hands-on demonstrations and informative presentations.
Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is accepting applications from makers who would like to exhibit their work at the event. There is no charge to be an exhibitor. The application form is online at www.kalispellminimakerfaire.com and must be submitted electronically by 5 p.m. on Feb. 15. Preference will be given to makers who can teach a skill through a hands-on activity and/or demonstrate a unique skill or craft.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, Calif., in 2006. Since then the San Mateo Maker Faire has grown to feature more than 1,000 makers and more than 130,000 attendees. Community-driven Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the world. The Kalispell Mini Maker Faire is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.
