2015 Faire Success

The buzz of energy at the Morris Lawrence Building at WCC on Saturday was palpable. With record attendance (1600+), 46 exhibitors including businesses, schools, entrepreneurs, hobbyists, nonprofits, and artists, 3 food trucks, and raffle prizes given out throughout the day, this year’s 7th annual faire was truly outstanding.

A2Geeks, Make Media, the Ann Arbor Hands-on Museum, Maker Works, Brain Monkeys, ShopBot Tools, Ann Arbor State Bank, Game Start, Robo Todd Industries and Sight Machine. And a special thank you to the Ann Arbor Hands-on Museum for hosting our Exhibitor Pre-Party.

Thank you to our amazing exhibitors who provided the crowds of people with demos, projects, conversation and information. Thank you for staying up late finishing your displays and then getting up early to set them up, for driving in from all areas of southeast Michigan and the Toledo area, and for your hours of enthusiasm and energy in interacting with attendees. It was an exhausting day and you did great!

And finally thank you for attending. As volunteer organizers, we strive to bring new aspects to the faire year after year. The days leading up are always a little tense, with hope that on the day-of people will show up. And this year, you certainly did: Tons of families and people of all ages, which is a testament to the  curiosity and support found in our region.
