Many people have heard of Maker Faire – there is the original one in the San Francisco Bay area and the one in New York City, World Maker Faire, but people do not always hear about the mini Maker Faires that happen in smaller cities all across the USA and the world.

On this weekend alone, there were nine mini Maker Faires:

I put Atlanta first because the 3DRV is in Atlanta this weekend and, naturally, we had to stop and enjoy the energy and enthusiasm. This faire seemed to have an abundant focus on educational groups, which is terrific, and the main photo is of a new mobile maker space called the Steam Truck. This truck has the lofty goal of placing a mobile shop in every school district in Georgia. Go Steam Truck!

If you’re curious about if and when a Faire is coming to your area, visit this map. You can also find out how to organize a new faire in your area on the Maker Faire site.
