2016 Schedule

Dover Mini Maker Faire Workshop & Demo Schedule

MakerFaireProgram2016-1

You won’t have to wait till Saturday to plan your visit to the 4th annual Dover Mini Maker Faire! We’ve got your programs here, and below. We were just looking through the schedule and noticed that almost HALF of the Makers this year are NEW to the Faire and have never participated before. That says a lot about how creative our local community is. Let’s celebrate that innovation in a big way this Saturday!

Share the Faire with your friends, and buy your tickets today!
