Toledo Mini Maker Faire

The Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth!

Saturday, September 15
Downtown Toledo, Festival Park

Join us as Imagination Station celebrates Toledo's glass, music, art & makers at Momentum, a three-day music and arts festival in downtown Toledo presented by The Arts Commission. Imagination Station will host the Toledo Mini Maker Faire in conjunction with this festive event! 

Momentum celebrates the transformative vibrancy of the arts for our city and region by supporting local artists and musicians and inviting international acts to perform and exhibit in Toledo. The 2017 Momentum festival featured dynamic, interactive, and accessible programming that brought over 17,000 attendees to the newly reopened Promenade Park on Toledo’s waterfront.

Toledo Mini Maker Faire 

Toledo Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of the Maker Movement, a DIY community of tech enthusiasts, scientists, garage tinkerers, artists and inventors – anyone who uses their own wits and hands to innovate, hack, tweak and create!

Join the science center for this family-friendly day of fun, hands-on activities, creativity, arts and technology. Imagination Station will be open that day, and Mini Maker Faire events and activities will happen outside.
