The Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire is back for its 5th year! Held at the Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) and nearby Grand Valley State University’s Hall of Engineering, Maker Faire combines a traditional science fair with innovation, technology and creativity.

Maker Faire is a community celebration of people who make things from prototyping and inventing, to those with unique trade skills, and more. Each booth offers a unique, hands-on opportunity to see how things are made and to learn how to do it on your own. Visitors to the Grand Rapids Maker Faire will see more than 100 maker booths ranging from robotics and 3D printing, to drone races, glass blowing, blacksmithing, wood turning, and even be a part of an iron pour during the two-day event! For more information and to see all of this year’s makers, visit
