The McAllen Chamber of Commerce will hold the first-ever McAllen Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, June 22 at the McAllen Creative Incubator, 601 N. Main St. from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Mini Maker Faire brings together families and individuals to celebrate the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and showcase all kinds of incredible projects. At Maker Faire, you'll find arts and crafts, science and engineering, food and music, fire and water but what makes this event special is that all these interesting projects and smart, creative people belong together. They are actively and openly creating a maker culture.
In its simplest form, Maker Faire creates conversations with Makers. It is a show-and-tell format for people of all ages that brings out the “kid” in all of us. Maker Faire is a community-based learning event that inspires everyone to become a maker and connect to people and projects in their local community. Maker Faire is a “fair” which will be fun and engaging. To learn more, please visit the McAllen Maker Faire website at http://mcallenmakerfaire.com/about-2/
