So, yeah, there was this thing happened this past weekend:
It was kind of a big deal for us at Kwartzlab. A year of planning, talking, and putting things together for something we’ve never done on this scale, in this community, ever, before. We were totally unaware of, and pleasantly surprised by, how big it was about to become.
We estimate there were 3-4,000 members of the community there, almost 50 tables, workshops, talks, demonstrations, and some live music. We had media coverage from several media outlets, including CBC KW, CTV, The Record, The Kitchener Post, to name a few. We even had some politicians come through and watched with glee as the daughter of one of them dragged her mother back into the Faire as they were trying to leave at least twice!
And guess what? We’re crazy enough to do it again. In about 365 days there will be a bigger, better, more awesome Waterloo Mini Maker Faire. We will want your help. We will need more Makers, Volunteers, Organizers, and Sponsors to make this thing an amazing annual event that will leave everyone who attends it happy, and those who don’t sad they missed out.
