There’s Nothing “Mini” About This Faire!

mini_me

You may be thinking to yourself, “If the Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire is such a big deal, why is it called a ‘mini’ maker faire?”

Well, there’s a good reason for that. See, mini maker faires are scaled down versions of the unbelievable full-size maker faires like the original in San Mateo, California, which is happening right now and features over 900 makers! (Check out the San Mateo makers ») Compared to these mega-spectacles, most of the grassroots events like ours seem a bit on the small side. But make no mistake, Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire is quite large. Especially for a mini.

So help us make history with our “mini” maker faire by applying for your spot, signing up for volunteer information, or just spreading the word on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.

And who knows? We may not be mini for long.
