The inaugural Fresno Mini Maker Faire will be hosted by the Fresno Art Museum at the Fresno Art Museum + Radio Park on Sat., April 12, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This is a community driven event in which volunteers from the community and community organizations partner and participate in the planning, production, and execution of the event. If you would like to volunteer please send and email to:

There will be over 50 makers at the event plus additional venders in the designated bazaar. There will also be fun hands-on activities for children and adults alike, as well as food, beverages, and entertainment for all to enjoy.

The Fresno Art Museum is very excited for the opportunity to combine the fields of Science and Technology with our expertise in the Arts for this incredible event.

About Maker Faire:

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 120,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees.

Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Rome, and Tokyo are the home of “featured” 2013 Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Fresno.
