Thanks to everyone who participated in the Maker Faire. It was a great day. We appreciated all the exhibitors and the time and effort they put into their demonstrations. We could not have had the faire without our sponsors Go Daddy, Rockwell Collins, NECA and IBEW.
Thanks to all that attended too. We look forward to future events!

What is the Maker movement you ask? Maker Faire is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. It’s free to attend the event and explore maker exhibits.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community. Makers will demonstrate and exhibit their creative work in science, technology, invention and the arts.
