It’s less than a month until Maker Faire and there is still so much to do! Continue reading
Calgary’s first Maker Faire is only two months away, and prep is really starting to ramp up! Continue reading
It’s been a crazy few months since we decided to plan Calgary’s first Mini Maker Faire, but progress is finally being made! Protospace has been extremely busy with projects & events, and Endeavor Arts has really made a name for itself in the art scene, thus Shannon and I have been hard pressed for free time to organize Maker Faire.
Originally, we had planned to host the event during the second week of June 2012 to take advantage of the warm weather and touristy season. Being strapped for time, we decided to change the date – to September 8th – which better aligns with Beakerhead (for their 2013 launch). Thus – save the date:
Calgary’s First Annual Mini Maker Faire is happening on the Riverfront in East Village, September 8th 2012 from 10AM to 6PM!
We’ve still a lot to do before we’re ready to sell tickets and generate hype. Paperwork must be filled out, Responsibilities must be assigned, sponsors must be found and our Call to Makers must be made. On the bright side, we are now licensed by O’Reilly as an official Mini Maker Faire and have received tentative festival approval from the City of Calgary (provided that we finish the paperwork ).
Stay tuned for more updates as we will be working hard to to ensure the success of Calgary’s First Mini Maker Faire, and please use our contact page if you have any questions.
