Our small team of organizers and producers is working feverishly to prepare for the first Fredonia Mini Maker Faire on the campus of The State University of New York at Fredonia on Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016.
We want to take a moment to share with you some images of the buildings on campus where the bulk of Maker Faire activities, displays and demonstrations will take place.
The event is happening in two spaces – the new, state-of-the-art, award-winning Science Center as well as the Williams Center – with a bevy of food trucks parked in between the two buildings. Additionally, we will have Makers, displays, demonstrations and performers scattered between the buildings and on the lawns and common areas around the heart of the beautiful campus.
The new Science Center is as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. The TeaRex Cafe is a popular spot to pause for a bubble tea and other refreshments.
The Williams Center will host a variety of Makers and make-and-take activities as well. There is a Tim Hortons in the building where attendees can purchase food and drinks.
In addition to the food trucks onsite, there is also a newly refurbished Starbucks at Cranston Hall.
There is ample free parking on campus on Ring Road and in various lots scattered across campus.
