About Cleveland Mini Maker Faire:
Presented by the Cleveland Public Library (CPL) and Ingenuity Cleveland, the Cleveland Mini Maker Faire (CMMF) builds on the area’s rich culture of innovation, invention, creativity, and making things. With a strong manufacturing and engineering base still intact as well as a vibrant biomedical and design community and a rich cultural history, Cleveland is a hotbed for Maker culture.
The CMMF grew out of a collaboration between CPL and Ingenuity at past IngenuityFests. Annual CMMF events in 2013, 2014 and 2015 built on the success of Ingenuity’s Make Space at the 2012 & 2013 Ingenuity Festival and the Cleveland Public Library’s TechCentral MakerSpace.
Maker Faire now has a permanent annual spot on the calendar and it will continue to grow in years to come.

About Maker Faire:
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 120,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Rome, and Tokyo are the home of “featured” 2013 Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Cleveland.
