August Field Day

First Annual Southcoast MA Mini Maker Faire

Innovation is riding on the sea breezes of the South Coast this year with the arrival of the Southcoast MA Mini Maker Faire on Sunday, September 18, from 10am - 4pm at the Fall River YMCA,  199 North Main Street, Fall River.

In order to tap into our area's rich and complex history of cultural diversity and manufacturing, this is a call to all makers who wish to showcase their crafts and talents. The Southcoast MA Mini Maker Faire believes that the most innovative ideas with the greatest economic impact will arrive through the work of those in the DIY movement. This new generation of tech savvy Fall River residents will bring revitalized life to the local culture and economy, creating a bridge to a great future and turning Fall River into a Massachusetts Gateway to the Future. 

Maker Faire began in 2005 in San Mateo, CA, with the objective of fostering creativity and invention to create a better future. It has since grown to 114 Mini Maker Faires around the world in 2014 with another 14 featured Maker Faires.
