Maker Faire Coming to Milwaukee, Wisconsin!

Posted by Plish on July 24, 2014


At last!

Every year I’ve bemoaned the fact that there wasn’t a  large, local Maker Faire in Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin.

This year will be different.

Thanks to the vibrantly creative Milwaukee Community and the sponsorship of the Brady Corporation, Milwaukee will be home to a two-day Maker Faire. The event will be held at the Wisconsin State Fair Park on Sept. 27th and 28th, 2014.  Admission is FREE!!  If you’d like to do some making at the Faire, they are currently excepting applications.

For more info there is the official press release here, and be sure to check out the website.

If you plan on going, please let me know. I hope to see you there!

If you’ve never checked out Make Magazine, you should.

It’s a great place to get the creative juices flowing by seeing how people from all over the world are ‘building better mouse traps’.

Every year they sponsor a Maker Faire and while I was not able to be there, Paula over at the Quite Curious blog was.  Her report is exciting and thorough!

This just goes to show how inherently creative people are!

We need one of these in the Midwest.
