Kansas City 2010 Mini Maker Faire
The Faire within Riverfest.
Kansas City's first Mini Maker Faire was held on August, 22, 2010 at Parkville Missouri, in the beautiful English Landing Park on the banks of the Missouri River.
The Faire was part of the annual Parkville Days Riverfest which ran from Aug. 20 to 22 and featured music, carnival rides, more than 100 art and craft boots, a Saturday parade, food, games and fun for the whole family.
Our Make:KC organization was asked to help boost attendance of these festivities on Sunday. From all indications we succeeded beyond expectations.
The Kansas City Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of the creative and inventive nature of area artists, tinkerers, scientists, hackers, and makers. This was a unique event unlike other fairs and festivals in the greater Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
Exhibits and Activities
Robots, Rockets, Submarines, and more. The day was filled with interesting sites, sounds, and activities for the entire family.

In the News
We caught the attention of the local Fox 4 Morning News crew who followed along as we set-up for the day. We had Makezine blogger, Matt Mets, attending as Mitch Altman and Jimmy Rodgers' roadie on their Midwest Hakerspaces Tour. Check out these news stories, blogs, and photo collections.
Make:KC joined forces with the Cowtown Computer Congress of Kansas City (CCCKC) hackerspace in presenting this event. We are proud of our sponsors who helped make this happen.
