Mini Maker Faires are independently produced, community driven events, run by a volunteer staff. The New Orleans Mini Maker Faire is no different; we rely on our local community of makers for content and our sponsors to enable us to be able to operate.
New Orleans Mini Maker Faire provides an ideal opportunity for corporate sponsors to gain access to an incredible audience of creative thinkers and tinkerers, with a focus on Do-It-Yourself (DIY), tech-savvy, and arts-inclined audiences. The event is expected to attract between 500 and 1,500 visitors, including children and families, students, and adults.
