Fifth Annual Dover Mini Maker Faire Seeks Participants
(Dover, NH – June 19, 2017) – The Dover Mini Maker Faire is celebrating its 5th year on Saturday, August 26, 2017. Organized by the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, this one-day festival is a chance for local inventors, entrepreneurs, tech-enthusiasts, artisans and more to showcase their talents. Makers of all kinds are invited to participate and applications are now being accepted.
The Dover Mini Maker Faire is New Hampshire’s only fair of its kind. It’s not a typical New England fair with cotton candy and ferris wheels. Instead, admission to the Dover Mini Maker Faire will include access to the latest technology innovations. You’ll be invited to play with robots, create and craft using unique materials, participate in science experiments, dive into virtual reality and so much more. As a Maker participant and presenter, you can show off your skills and share your knowledge with over 1,600 interested adults and children.
All ages are encouraged to apply to be a Maker. As a Maker you can sell your products, offer a workshop or demonstration, do a performance or simply have an exhibit or booth sharing your knowledge. Food Vendors are also invited to apply. Applications are online at dover.makerfaire.com. The deadline for Makers to apply is Friday, August 4.
“We continue to be so impressed by the region’s creativity, and feel honored to be able to provide these makers, whether they are young or young at heart, with a venue to showcase their talents,” said Jane Bard, President of the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire.
The Dover Mini Maker Faire will take over downtown Dover, with four locations: upper and lower Henry Law Park, The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire, and One Washington Mill.
Advance tickets will be on sale July 1-31 for $10 and tickets at the gate will be $12. Children ages 5 and under are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased online at dover.makerfaire.com. For more information on the Dover Mini Maker Faire, please call 603-742-2002 or visit dover.makerfaire.com.
