Maker Faire in Fort Wayne

Nice!!  Last night we were wandering around downtown and stumbled upon the Taste of Arts festival.  It was ok, lots of food, some decent live bands, and pop-up tents with pottery, paintings, and knick-knacks. But I was a little bored.  Bored until we came to the Maker tent!  It looks like we finally have made the big time.  We will have a Make Faire at Headwaters Park pavilion this 01-02 October.

A friend in Chicago says that all Fort Wayne has is Cow Tipping.  He may be right but now we can build cow-tip-bots.

From the TekVenture website:
Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire is a family-friendly event to MAKE, create, learn, invent, CRAFT, recycle, think, play and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology.

October 1st & 2nd under the pavilion at beautiful Headwaters Park.

Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire celebrates things people create themselves — from James Bond-worthy electronic gizmos to Martha Stewart-quality "slow made" foods and homemade clothes. Inspiration is ubiquitous at the festival and there are surprises around every corner for people of all ages.
