Maker faires are a family-friendly celebration of invention and creativity, open to people of all ages. Maker Faires also provide an opportunity for organizations to get more involved in their communities through sponsorship, showcasing products, or volunteering. This year's sponsors discuss why they decided to be involved in the maker movement.

The first ever Greater Hartford Mini Maker Faire comes to Tunxis Community College on Saturday, October 3.
