Maker Faire is an annual event organized by the people who bring us MAKE Magazine. Maker Faire:NC is a fully sanctioned event but is being planned and coordinated by Raleigh/Durham locals. It brings together Makers, Crafters, Inventors, Evil Geniuses, Scientists, Artists, and anyone else interested in learning from NC, SC, VA, DC, and beyond.
Maker Faire:NC will be held on April 25, 2010 from 9 am to 9 pm at Loehmann’s Plaza in Durham, North Carolina. The plaza address is 1821 Hillandale Rd, Durham NC 27705.
And guess what? Maker Faire:NC is FREE!
Come gawk at gadgets, interact with inventions, and otherwise play, peruse, and perambulate.
I am soooo sorry about that last alliterative set. It’s hard not to get carried away by a great gathering of people who make stuff.
This video from the Full Size Maker Faire held in 2009 in California will give you a little idea of what it’s all about. This NC version may not be quite so big (yet), but you can bet it will be overflowing with the spirit of innovation.
See you at Maker Faire:NC!
