Calling all makers! Hailed as “The Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth,” Dayton Mini Maker Faire is coming to Carillon Historical Park on July 16 from 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Presented in partnership with Make It Dayton, Carillon Park will come alive with tinkerers, inventors, hobbyists—anyone who creates with their own two hands. This family friendly event features robotics, blacksmithing, rocketry, sewing, steam engines, 3D printing, live demonstrations, and hands-on activities.

Highlighted at the inaugural Dayton Mini Maker Faire will be the Boneyard Build-Off–a Junkyard Wars-style competition where professional makers race against the clock to complete a project using repurposed and recycled materials. Attendees can either watch in person or across the park via video feed (provided by local amateur radio operators).

A 90,000 square-foot model rocket launch zone will be stationed in front of the towering 151-foot Deeds Carillon. With the assistance of expert rocketeers, visitors can build and launch their own model rockets.

“Dayton Mini Maker Faire is the only place in town where you’ll be able to launch a rocket, learn to knit, and race a steam engine,” says Josh Cory, a founding member of Make It Dayton, “then follow it up with a visit to the 1905 Wright Flyer III, the only airplane designated a National Historic Landmark, and sample authentic 1850s-style beer.”

We chatted with Cara Kouse, Branch Manager for the Dayton Metro Library.
