FREDONIA – Learn more about the upcoming Fredonia Mini Maker Faire at a Maker Meetup social hour Wednesday, Aug. 17 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the atrium of the new Science Center on the campus of Fredonia, the State University of New York. There is ample nearby parking and a few entrances to access the facility.

Join a community of creative people organizing the first Maker Faire in the region and find out where you can fit in. Makers (STEM enthusiasts, artists, inventors, creators, tinkerers, performers and beyond) are invited to bring examples of their creations and projects. The public is invited to learn more about the Maker Movement in anticipation of the free, family-friendly main event slated Saturday, Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Fredonia State campus.

The Fredonia Mini Maker Faire is a collaborative effort of Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES, Fredonia, and MAKE magazine with the support of the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System, Lumsden & McCormick LLP of Buffalo and other generous sponsors.

Described as a “circus of creativity” and “the world’s greatest show-and-tell,” there has never been anything quite like a Maker Faire in Chautauqua County.

Deadline for applying to be a featured Maker is Aug. 22.  E-mail makerfaire@e2ccb.org for more information.
