News release from TekVenture:
Fort Wayne Regional Maker FaireÂ® Announces Call for Makers Now Open!
(June 24, 2014) – The Fort Wayne Regional Maker FaireÂ® – Powered by TekVenture is set to take place September 13 & 14 at Headwaters Park East – Lincoln Pavilion.This is like no other event in that guests participate in experiential learning such as how to weld or solder while learning how Makers of the region and beyond go about turning their ideas into reality. Cirque AmongsUs will also be back for our 4th year so guests will again get to learn circus performance art and ride alternative vehicles.
Music, food, and workshops will be available to help curb those cravings for great entertainment and eating locally produced food. This event is also unique in that guests get to learn cool things about Makers, their projects and the tools, materials, and processes used to make them. Who knows which idea will change the world. We hope you’ll find that maybe you’re a Maker too!
Mark your calendars and stay tuned for event updates. We’re currently looking for attraction ideas such as fun art cars, speakers, or quirky things in which the public might be interested. There will also be projects to build so visit us at the Maker Faire to see what new skills you might learn.
If you like to tinker or are passionate about technology, art making, or any other projects you want to share with others, this is the event for you. Free to Makers who want to share their ideas, just apply by submitting your completed Call for Makers. Fees apply to all other categories of Makers.
This is a community driven event serving as a fundraiser for TekVenture so if interested in exhibiting, volunteering, racing, or sponsoring, we’d love to hear from you at.
