Saskatoon Mini Maker Faire had its inaugural annual event in May 2018 and featured both established and emerging provincial Makers displaying various DIY science and technology projects, educational workshops, robots, hand-made crafts, wearable creations, sci-fi related displays & art, inventions, everyday hacks and more.
Following the Maker Faire philosophy of family-friendly festivals of invention, creativity and resourcefulness; this gathering welcomes a broad range of ideas and projects brought to you by Saskatchewan community members from all walks of life! You never know who could be a Maker… you might just discover your neighbour’s hidden talents!
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.
Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine. It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.
