Announcing the 2012 Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire, June 2, 2012!

Local and regional Makers will show off their creations at the fourth Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire (, held 10 am to 5 pm Saturday June 2, 2012. This family-friendly event is free to attend, and is again at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds (aka “Saline Fairgrounds”) 10 minutes south of Ann Arbor.

The Faire features silkscreening, robots, sustainable technology, electronics and more, all with an emphasis on “do it yourself”.

The mission of the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire is to present interesting or unique exhibits, individuals, and demonstrations in DIY science, technology, engineering, and art that excite, motivate, and educate. The emphasis is on cool things, skills, and knowledge. As a shorthand, the exhibits are the kind of thing you’d see in Make Magazine. The Faire is organized by a2geeks (, an Ann Arbor area foundation promoting the informal technology culture, and is organized in cooperation with Maker Faire.
