What an event! The Mini Maker Faire was bigger and better than ever this year with over 100 makers all showcasing fun technology/making based projects. The Cleveland Public Library was jam packed today with so many makers, that you didn’t even know where to start. Luckily, CoolCleveland correspondent Marty Bielat caught Artistic Director of the faire, James Krouse, as he was making his rounds, and asked him a few questions.
Krouse told CoolCleveland all about what was happening at the festival, about some of his favorite makers and even a little bit more than was expected! In addition to sponsoring the Maker Faire, Ingenuity Cleveland also hosts the region’s largest Technology/Arts festival: Ingenuity Fest. When asked about the location and date of this year’s festival, Krouse gave CoolCleveland an unofficial statement about how we should keep our last weekend in September clear. Plus, we should be looking towards the Great Lake Science Center and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame regarding location.
Thank you again James Krouse for taking the time to speak with CoolCleveland at such a hectic event. We loved the energy, the technology and the pure ambition that was in the air throughout the faire. The Mini Maker Faire was definitely a success this year, and we are all looking forward to Ingenuity Fest this September. Make sure you stay tuned to CoolCleveland for more information on Ingenuity Fest, this year’s Mini Maker Faire, and everything else Cleveland related.
