The event is set for Saturday, April 30, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Westport Library and on adjacent grounds.

Produced by Remarkable STEAM in partnership with the Westport Library, the Mini maker Faire is Connecticut’s largest event focused on creativity and innovation, organizers say.

Remarkable STEAM, Inc. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) is the leading Connecticut nonprofit organization that promotes innovation and creativity in specified areas.

Each year at the Maker Faire, which is free to the public, technology enthusiasts, crafts people, educators, tinkerers, artists, hobbyists, engineers, scientists, students, teachers, food artisans and commercial exhibitors participate.

Those interested in showing their work can apply at http://bit.ly/WMMF2016CallForMakers or at http://www.westportmakerfaire.org.

“Every year, the Westport Mini Maker Faire continues to attract talent that inspires and amazes attendees,” said Mark Mathias, founder and co-chair of the event.

“With a planned attendance this year of 10,000, we expect a record number of makers as well as attendees. We also look forward to announcing some incredible makers as well as leaving a few experiences to surprise and delight people when they arrive.”

Mathias added that to celebrate the Maker Faire’s fifth anniversary, this year’s theme will be “five” in all its possible configurations.

Maker projects that incorporate “five” will be featured leading up to and at the event.

In addition to makers who incorporate this theme, those who demonstrate the positive impact makers and making have on communities will be specially recognized, Mathias said.

Event organizers are also calling for sponsors. Those interested can contact Mathias at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or to call (203) 226-1791.
