Home to historic inventors like the Wright Brothers, Kettering, and Deeds, celebrate our Maker Heritage and start making our Maker Future at the 3rd Annual Dayton Mini Maker Faire! Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. These “makers” attend Dayton Mini Maker Faire to show off their skills and learn something new.
When: Saturday, August 4, 9:30 AM – 5 PM and Sunday, August 5, 12 PM – 5 PM
Where: Carillon Historical Park
Cost: Dayton History members & Mini Makers (under 3) – FREE | $8 – Adult Makers | $7 – Experienced Makers (60+) | $5 – Young Makers (3-17)
The airplane, cash register, automobile starter motor, and countless ubiquitous inventions were all made in Dayton. Carillon Historical Park celebrates the Gem City’s incredible history of innovation, making it the perfect backdrop for Dayton Mini Maker Faire. Presented in partnership with Make It Dayton, the Park will come alive with tinkerers, inventors, hobbyists, and anyone who creates with their own two hands.
Fun for all ages, this family-friendly event features robotics, blacksmithing, rocketry, sewing, steam engines, 3D printing, live demonstrations, and hands-on activities.
