Save the date! The Chicago Southside Mini Maker Faire is taking place on Saturday, August 8 from 11 to 5 at the Ford City Mall (7601 S Cicero Ave) in Chicago. As with the Northside Mini Maker Faire, the organizers of Chicago Southside Faire are committed to opening the Faire to the public at no cost. Donations are welcome and very much appreciated, however.
The family-friendly festival is a “family-friendly festival of invention and creativity.” There’s always something new to learn or interesting to see at a Maker Faire! There’s typically opportunities to dive hands-first into some type of making as well.
Expect to see robots, 3D printers, electronics, urban agriculture, jewelry and more.
