About the Simsbury Mini Maker Faire

Building on the Simsbury Public Library’s successful Innovation Fairs, the first Simsbury Mini Maker Faire event was held last year in April 2017. This year’s event will be on Saturday, May 5th from 10am to 4pm.

At the Library and adjacent grounds, Makers of all types will gather in Simsbury for a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness — a celebration of the Maker movement.

The Simsbury Mini Maker Faire is presented by the Simsbury Public Library in partnership with the Simsbury Main Street Partnership.

The Simsbury Mini Maker Faire is independently organized and operated under license from Maker Media, Inc.

Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine. It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.

What is Maker 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!
