Curiosity and creativity find a home at the 3rd annual Minneapolis-St. Paul Mini Maker Faire. For the third year, this interactive, family-friendly festival of fun, innovation and ingenuity will be back at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Join us on Saturday, June 3 at the Grandstand from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. From art to engineering, area makers do it all. Come to the faire to see the makers’ creative endeavors and stay for a few hours to try your hand at metalworking, coding, woodturning, screen printing, weaving, welding and so much more. There are activities for all ages and all interests.
New this year:
Find us at the Grandstand! The Maker Faire will be at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds again this year, but we’ve moved to the Grandstand.
Buy a ticket package! For the price of two adult admissions, you get four tickets (see Attend page for more details).
More, more, more! In 2016, 150 makers and 5,000 visitors attended the faire. This year, we are planning for more makers, more visitors, and more surprising, awe-inspiring creations.
