Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire

Take some creativity, mix it with a little intuition, add some elbow grease and a little tinkering…. and you’ve got Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire!

Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds

Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire
will call the Hamilton County Fairgrounds home this weekend (Sept. 15 and 16, 2018, 11am to 5pm). 

What can you expect to see? Here’s a VERY small sample of what you might encounter at Mini Maker Faire.

  • Mike Welch and the Cincinnati Quad Racers will have both indoor and outdoor races and be on-hand to discuss how you can get involved with drone racing at the ground floor.
  • Kristin Dugas, a staff member at The Krohn Conservatory, will be on hand and she’s on the lookout for volunteers interested in making some props for the Krohn’s fall show.
  • Blacksmithing is one of the oldest making skills that will be on display at Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire this year. Chris Daniel and the Cincinnati Blacksmith’s Guild will be at Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire and they’ll demonstrate how to make simple tools, like hooks, bottle openers, letter openers and more.
  • Help create a geodesic wonderland from truncated icosahedrons! Sound difficult? Don’t worry! You will learn the easy techniques of creating structures using only rubber bands and dowel rods.

For those of you who have been to this event here in Cincinnati, you’ll remember that this is the same Cincinnati Museum Center event that used to be held at Union Terminal. With the restoration work that’s been going on there (Union Terminal), Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire has been held at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds for the last few years.
