The first ever San Jose Mini Maker Faire is happening this Sunday, bringing the nerdy fun of the Maker Faire, but with far fewer crowds. It’s the Greatest Show and Tell on Earth, but at a smaller scale. Much like the bigger Maker Faire in San Mateo each May, this smaller faire will feature all kinds of creative projects and people, excited about tinkering and trying new things.
School robotics teams will be there showing off their work, in addition to artists, poets, scientists, builders, musicians, homesteaders, gardeners, and more. There is truly something for every creative interest, with plenty of hands-on activities intended to spark learning.
The family-friendly event will feature over 70 different Makers and expects a crowd of about 2,000 people ay History Park (1650 Senter Road, San Jose). It’s one day only and runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and advance tickets cost $13/adult and $7/children 3-18. The day of the event, ticket prices rise to $20/adult and $15/children over 3.
