We Have Great Sponsors

We’ve received some great financial support from the community to help make the fifth Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire a success. We’d like to thank the following awesome organizations who are not just helping us promote the event but also lending some cash to make things happen. Our goal is to continue to make this event as accessible to the community as possible. A big part of that means making it free. 

Huge thank you to all of the organizations that help us make this happen. We are pleased to have support from across the area, from academic programs at the University of Michigan to entrepreneurs and education groups.

Big thanks to Sloe Gin Fizz

This year we’ve got a lot of changes in store for you. New venue, new date, and a new design for our poster. Did you see the poster? Did you print one out for your home? Look down and to the right on our site (under our sponsors) and you’ll notice an awesome robot riding a unicorn with wheels.

Nicole Ray, artist and owner of Sloe Gin Fizz, was kind enough to design and create this poster for the fifth Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire. The Faire is a celebration of the creativity, craft, and innovation in our community. We showcase this throughout our organization of the Faire and Nicole’s work is just one illustration of the passion and skill in southeast Michigan.

We’re really proud of this poster and grateful to Nicole for agreeing to work with us. Feel free to print out the poster, enjoy it at home, and help us spread the word!

We’re looking forward to seeing you on June 8.
