Cincinnati Museum Center Mini Maker Faire puts region’s creativity and ingenuity on display

CINCINNATI – Attention inventors, tinkerers, hackers, mad scientists and makers! Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire is back. Cincinnati Museum Center’s family-friendly showcase of imagination, design and ingenuity will once again take over the Hamilton County Fairgrounds September 15 & 16.

Part of MAKE Magazine ‘s larger Maker movement, Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire is part science fair, part county fair, bringing together tech inventors, engineers, hobbyists, educators, artists and more. Together, these makers display their creations and share their passion for conceiving the unthinkable and doing the impossible.

“Our community is brimming with bright, innovative minds that are redefining what’s possible,” says Elizabeth Pierce, president and CEO of Cincinnati Museum Center. “Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire is an incredible opportunity to showcase their talent and ingenuity while igniting the creativity and imagination of future makers.”

Last year featured LEGO cityscapes and Cincinnati icons, fully-functioning R2-D2s, a marching band playing MacGyver’ed intsruments, 3D printing demos and a cardboard free build area where imaginations ran wild. This year, CMC is expecting crazier contraptions, more explosive spectacles and innovative inventions that will showcase the region’s imagination.

Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire will also feature instructional workshops, local food trucks and vendors so you can take a piece of the experience with you and begin your own maker journey.

Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire is free for CMC Members. For more information visit
