Take a look at our current list of Makers, Vendors and Workshops here. There is truly something for everyone at the first annual Poughkeepsie Mini Maker Faire.
For children ages five and under there will be a mini maker’s area where kids can unleash their imaginations by building with cardboard “Bloxes” and playing amongst giant blue foam blocks of all shapes and sizes in the Imagination Playground installation provided by Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum. Older children and adults will have lots to do and experience including a flying drone obstacle course, 3D printing, virtual reality exhibits and even workshops on topics ranging from beekeeping, food canning, to making art from invasive species and Native American Hoop Dancing. Vassar College’s Barefoot Monkeys circus troop will be performing throughout the day and everyone will have an opportunity to pet and have their picture taken with llamas, goats and Alpaca and collaborate in sewing a community blanket and paint a mural led by visual artist Nestor Madalengoitia.
