Makers Heed the Call!

Ready to Showcase Your Creations at Colorado’s largest Maker Faire? The Call for Makers is OPEN!

Colorado Maker Hub presents the Third Annual NoCo Mini Maker Faire – a family friendly event where Colorado makers, inventors and artisan crafters showcase their creativity and resourcefulness. The festivities will take place at the Rocky Mountain Center for Innovation and Technology on October 9,10,11.

The NoCo Mini Maker Faire Call for Makers is Open! As the longest running and largest maker faire in Colorado, the NoCo Mini Maker Faire is THE place to showcase your creations, be inspired by others, and celebrate with collaborators across the spectrum of makers – from inventors to artists, scientists to crafters, entrepreneurs and more. This year’s event expands even further as Faire goers will find over 200 Makers sharing inventions, projects, hobbies and artisan crafts. In addition to all the wonders you have come to expect from the Faire, producers have also teamed up with maker groups in the region to add even more.

On Friday, October 9th, the weekend will open with a Makers After Dark. From 6pm – 9pm this event will include a craft distillery tasting and an array of maker displays featuring lasers, music and fire!

Alongside the faire, for the first time, the NoCo Mini Maker Faire is hosting the Inventor Showcase. Founded by the DaVinci Institute, this 9th annual event features a competition of up to 50 inventors from across the Rocky Mountains along with an Inventor Bootcamp hosted by the Inventors Roundtable.

Additionally, sponsored by Ottercares, the NoCo Faire includes a youth entrepreneur pavilion. The Youth Entrepreneur pavilion includes mentoring for these students starting their own businesses. With mentoring before and during the event, this is a great opportunity for new businesses to test their ideas in a supportive marketplace.

“It’s been great to see the collaborations and exposure that our artists and makers have developed as a result of makers participating in the NoCo Faire,” says producer Elizabeth “Elise” VanDyne. “Our makers have been profiled on the local, national and international news, have received invitations to present at Faires across the country, and have developed creative collaborations that have inspired their work.”

Are you a maker with something amazing to share? Are you a creator with something to share during Makers After Dark, an inventor that wants to see how your invention will rate in a competition with your peers, a young entrepreneur ready to test your business in our marketplace?
