The 2016 New Orleans Mini Maker Faire was a huge success! We had 3,000 attendees and 90+ exhibiting makers, speakers, performers, and workshops, which made for a great day of celebrating New Orleans maker culture! From the planning team and the folks at Bricolage Academy, we’d like to thank everyone who attended, special guests Bob Clagett (I Like To Make Stuff) and Big Chief David Montana (Washitaw Nation), all of our speakers and performers, and most important all of our makers. We hope you had a great time, and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
Order your official T-shirts before April 17th. T-shirts are only available online. These shirts are the dark blue with gray ink version of the volunteer shirts that you saw walking around the New Orleans Mini Maker Faire. Order yours today and show your New Orleans maker pride!
VIP badges are still available! It’s not too late to get your hands on one of the limited edition, hackable VIP Badges that you might have seen walking around the Maker Faire. Featuring a 3.3v Arduino Pro Mini clone, this badge is a great way to get started learning Arduino, or for use in projects requiring a tiny microcontroller. We have some badges left over and are selling them at cost ($35), so if you want one please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
See photos from the big day. Check out photos from the event as we add them.
