Kingsport TN Mini Maker Faire 2013 Registration is Open

Come join us for our second Mini Maker Faire on Sunday July 14 from 1 pm – 6 pm. In 2012 we had 26 MAKERS! and attendance was over 500. This was the first time we have gathered our talented makers in one area. We had a very successful event and look forward to growing it this year. Come join us. Teach and learn.

Are you a MAKER? The Kingsport Mini-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.

On the practical side  – we have indoor and outdoor spaces available.There is no registration fee for makers. This event happens within our 9 day community wide festival Fun Fest July 12-20
