Mark your calendars for the greatest mini show and tell on earth!  The Poughkeepsie Mini Maker Faire will be held on Saturday, November 12 from 10am to 4pm. This year’s event will have a special focus on sustainability.

The Poughkeepsie Mini Maker Faire is a fun and family-friendly eventthat celebrates what the mid-Hudson Valley is inventing, making and creating. It brings together Makers, Crafters, Farmers, Inventors, Hackers, Scientists and Artists of all ages in one place for learning, play, spectacle and inspiration. Watch this short video to get a feel for what a Maker Faire is all about. If you have a little more time, take a look at this inspiring TEDx  presentation by Maker Faire founder Dale Dougherty.

Poughkeepsie Day School is thrilled to be presenting the only Mini Maker Faire in the mid-Hudson Valley. Last year’s event drew over 1,000 visitors and over 65  diverse Makers and vendors.

We’re just getting started, but check back soon to see how you can get involved in what we know is going to be an even more amazing event!
