Expecting more than 5,000 attendees, the third Maker Faire will gather at the iconic campus of the National YoungArts Foundation  for a weekend full of inventions, performances and workshops by more than 150 local and regional innovators in science, technology, multi-disciplinary arts, education and design. The Faire is an opportunity for artists, engineers, tinkerers, entrepreneurs and educators to share their passions, connect with peers and inspire the next generation of makers.

Produced by MIAMade in association with Maker Media, The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, Miami Mini Maker Faire is a community-focused event at the cross-section of a thriving cultural arts scene and burgeoning science and technology sector. It features local “makers” and entrepreneurs specializing in everything from robotics, DIY science and technology, and traditional handcrafts, to emerging talent in the visual, literary, design and performance arts. For 2016, YoungArts has joined the Faire as a title sponsor.
