The Minneapolis/St. Paul Mini Maker Faire will not be held in 2019. The event has attracted over 20,000 enthusiastic makers, students, teachers, sponsors, and attendees since 2015 but the cost of holding the event has not been matched with fees, sponsorships and ticket sales.

The soul of making and sharing remains strong with the organizers and we are looking to re-imagine the Faire as part of another festival or with new partners to increase public awareness and attendance.
