Downtown Columbia Mini Maker Faire – inaugural celebration of innovation and creativity scheduled for October 7, 2018 at Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods.
The Inner Arbor Trust, Downtown Columbia Partnership, Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, Downtown Columbia Arts and Culture Commission, and Howard County Tech Council are co-hosting Downtown Columbia Mini Maker Faire, a celebration of creativity and innovation. Downtown Columbia Mini Maker Faire is independently produced under a license from MAKE, publisher of MAKE magazine. The event is free to attend, but tickets are requested via downtowncolumbia.makerfaire.com to assign parking.
Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects. It is called it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. Glimpse the future and get inspired!
“Merriweather Park at Symphony Woods, and the Chrysalis in particular, is a merger of creativity and technology, of art and engineering,” says Nina Basu, President & CEO of the Inner Arbor Trust. “We are thrilled to host the community to celebrate creativity.”
