The University of Akron Wayne College will host the third annual Wayne County Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This free event is open to the community and features technology, arts, crafts, electronics and more.

Located at 1901 Smucker Road in Orrville, the event will showcase 60 makers from Wayne County and surrounding areas. It’s a gathering of people who enjoy learning and love sharing what they do.

The Maker Faire showcases hands-on projects and ideas that aren’t encountered every day. The 2019 makers include belt sander drag racing, pirates, soldering, Lego Earth, model rockets, knitting, video games through the decades, woodcarving, Ventrac’s Robot Club, sustainable farming, Lucky 19 Teas, natural dyeing with Hale Farm & Village, maple syrup making with Pleasant Hill Outdoor Camp and more.

This year’s Maker Faire also will include family entertainment such as face painting, a balloon artist and caricature artist. Food vendors including Hartzler Dairy will be available.

The Wayne County Mini Maker Faire is brought by the University of Akron Wayne College and is made possible through the support of the Romich Foundation and www.Makezine.com along with other local sponsors.
