The San Antonio Public Library will host the first-ever Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, Oct.17 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Central Library. Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, the faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors.
The San Antonio Mini Maker Faire is an exhibition of San Antonio’s vibrant creative community. Makers (individuals and groups) will present their DIY projects, to show their work and to share what they have learned with the rest of San Antonio. The Library invites families to make, create, learn, invent, play and be inspired by arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science & technology! Attendance is free, but registration is recommended. To register, visit makerfairesanantonio.com. Food will be available for purchase from The Fridge-SA food truck.
