5th Annual Buffalo Mini Maker Faire
Event Chairman: Charles Bartel Date: May 12, 2018 ; Time: 10AM - 6PM
The 5th Annual Buffalo Mini Maker Faire is a full-blown WNY community festival that celebrates innovation, invention, and the do-it-yourself spirit! We bring together artists, tinkerers, scientists, experimenters, crafters, designers, engineers, foodies, musicians, and builders of all ages who want to share their work and ideas with others. Whether you make your own computer software or musical instruments, build your own robots or racecars, make candy or poetry, the Buffalo Mini Maker Faire is your chance to show the community what you’re making! This is your chance to be a part of this vibrant community!
This year’s event will be hosted by The Park School of Buffalo located at 4625 Harlem Road, in Snyder NY 14226. The event will take place on Saturday, May 12th, 2018 and will be open to the public from 10am-6pm!
Mr. Bill Rider, a Garden Railway fan, is coordinating this event this year. He thought that a display on garden railway items would be a good addition, and is interested in a table top display of buildings, people, cars, etc. that have been made and or modified by club members that could be put on display. The WNYGRS offered the Arcade & Attica train as an example of a model of a local train, as well as buildings such as the Courier station, switch tower, and/or other club items (Studebaker dealership, filling station on fire, etc.). Besides myself, we need several Membership Volunteers to be on site for part/all of the time the fair is open. Please contact the Event Chairman if you are interested, or for further details.
