The Baton Rouge Mini Maker Faire is a community festival that brings together science, art, craft, homesteading, and makers of all kinds.
Our 5th annual faire welcomed thousands of people at the East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library. Attendees met over 60 makers showing and explaining their projects; participated in hands-on workshops; and enjoyed music and food trucks throughout the day. You can, too!
This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers across the Baton Rouge area and beyond—anyone who is embracing the DIY or DIT (do-it-together!) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. Exhibits that are interactive or highlight the process of making things are especially desired.
The first step to participating in the Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about yourself and your project. Entries can be submitted from individuals; groups such as hobbyist clubs and schools; commercial makers or crafters; startups; and companies.
Here’s some suggested ideas for topics that we’re looking for:
Maker Exhibit: Our standard setup for a Maker exhibit is roughly an 8’x10′ space. If you need more space for your exhibit or project, please let us know. Use this space to display your work and/or demonstrate how you make something.
Presentations or Workshops: 15- or 30-minute time slots. Can be demos, stories, how-tos, and group (panel) conversations.
If you have any questions about participating in Maker Faire, please contact us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you at East Baton Rouge Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, October 19th!
