5th Dover Mini Maker Faire

The Dover Mini Maker Faire is a day long festival where people of all ages show what they are making, and share what they are learning. Check out our dedicated website with more complete info about our Faire: dover.makerfaire.com

This isn’t your typical New England fair, although we always have great food! More than 1,600 people attended last year to interact with robots, play with rockets, try their hands at science experiments, geek out with innovative technology, create arts and crafts and more. This year, with over 65 Makers participating, we’ll have pirates, ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, beer tasting, live music, virtual reality, a video game trailer, fun with clay, a beekeeper, lego robots, student robots, professionally built robots, face painting, meatball subs, fusion food, cupcakes, Raspberry Pi, screen printing, arts and crafts, coffee tasting, a chance to talk to a satelite, comic workshops, fairy house building, egg drop challenges, and SO MUCH MORE!

Kids ages 5 and under are free. Tickets are on sale now for $10 online/ $12 at the door:

New this year: Cardboard Challenge! We’re inviting all creative individuals, families, clubs, organizations, and school teams to design and develop creative and inspiring exhibits made almost entirely out of cardboard! Sign up to participate and your creations will be displayed in a Cardboard Box Museum at the 5th annual Dover Mini Maker Faire!
