Akron Mini Maker Faire 2016

This is the fourth Akron Mini Maker Faire (#AkronMiniMakerFaire) that I have attended at the Akron-Summit County Public Library Main Library (@AkronLibrary). The Akron Mini Maker Faire is a very impressive Maker event, and I always enjoy it. The library reported that more than 1,600 people attended!

The Akron Mini Maker Faire is a free, family-friendly event to make, create, invent, learn, craft, recycle, think, and play. Presented by the Akron-Summit County Public Library and Maker Media. Akron Mini Maker Faire is independently produced and licensed by Maker Media, Inc. For more information about Maker Faire: http://bit.ly/2bopd5G
Contact the Science & Technology division at 330-643-9075 or makerfaire@akronlibrary.org.

This year, it was fun that the Akron Mini Maker Faire was held on November 12, 1016, since this was the week after the Cleveland Mini Maker Faire. This made November 2016 the Maker month in Northeast Ohio!

What follows are photos, videos, the participant list, and tweets/retweets from the day. I had a great time talking to many of the creative people who had displays at the event. I have gathered this information to keep alive my fun memories from the day, and to encourage others to attend future Akron Mini Maker Faires.

When you are finished reading this blog post, I encourage you to read my Cleveland Mini Maker Faire 2016 blog post to learn about the Cleveland Public Library (@Cleveland_PL) event.

Future

I was glad to see this already posted on the Akron Mini Maker Faire Facebook page:

Announcing Akron Mini Maker Faire 2017!

Is it too soon for a Save the Date? No, of course not! The next Akron Mini Maker Faire will be held on Saturday, November 11, 2017. Can't wait to see what happens.

 

I hope to attend again next year! It is great that both the Akron Mini Maker Faire and the Cleveland Mini Maker Faire will be coming back!
