ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — The Big Muddy Mini Maker Faire 2020 has announced a call for makers, individuals and groups on Saturday, March 7 at Restoration Natatorium.
In its third year, the faire continues to grow and features makers from around the region, according to an event news release. The faire is currently seeking individuals of all ages, groups/clubs, schools, higher education institutions, companies or organizations who would like to show creations and share skills. Exhibits range from glass blowing to virtual reality.
Donna Gibson, faire producer, said the event encourages makers to feature hands-on learning during their demonstrations.
“The Big Muddy Mini Maker Faire is an opportunity for attendees to experience a variety of career fields in STEAM,” Gibson said. “STEAM inspired booths at our past two faires have included building birdhouses, spinning yarn and playing music with man-made lightning.”
Makers are encouraged to exhibit and demonstrate at no charge unless they plan to sell product. The goal of the faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow maker culture and opportunities for DIY and learning for the northwest Missouri region.
