This is the first year of The Big Muddy Mini-Maker Faire, located in St. Joseph, Missouri. Our faire will launch on March 3, 2018, at the Restoration Natatorium on North Second and Francis streets. Until now, you had to travel to Kansas City, Springfield, Omaha or Des Moines to visit a Maker Faire. Now, a faire is in your own backyard.
We join a growing network of Mini-Maker Faires that are selectively chosen to bring this exciting engagement to their local communities.
Maker Faire creates conversations with makers about their discoveries. With a show-and-tell format for people of all ages, this interactive event brings out the “kid” in all of us. Our regional outreach is to makers, vendors, sponsors and visitors of Northwest Missouri. Our goal is to offer an exciting, educational and entertaining experience.
We invite you to be a part of our faire.
Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.
We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Glimpse the future and get inspired!
