Save the Date! Save the Place!

Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire returns in 2015 on August 8 (8/8, easy to remember). We’ll be back in the Pell Chafee Performance Center, and once again will be happening at the same time as AS220’s Foo Fest. See you there!

Where’s the Faire?

Looking forward to seeing you at the Faire! We’ll be up and running, rain or shine. The Faire is spread out over a few spots:

  • One Hasbro Place, Providence RI: Come check out everything from Hasbro’s Doh-Vinci to their Kre-O construction set toys, and get a look at what Hasbro animatronics look like under the skin.
  • Adrian Hall Way: We’ll be closing down this street to showcase dozens of local makers. Check out Jeff Del Papa’s manhole cover-sized coin flipper, music, beer brewing, crafts, and other creations.
  • AS220, 115 Empire St: We’ll be taking over AS220’s performance space with AS220 Labs’ learn to solder workshops, pinball machines, LED cubes, and microcontrollers.
  • AS220’s 95 Empire space will have lots of electronics, robots, and 3d printers.


Visit Park Downtown Providence for information on parking.

Discounted Family Tickets Available

Steeple St

We’ve heard from a number of people that the price of bringing a family to the Faire can add up, so we’ve added a Family Pass for up to 5 people. With the Eventbrite fees, it comes to a mere $18.50, which saves you money even if you were just buying tickets individually for a family of three.

RI Mini Maker Faire: October 11

We’re excited to announce that the sixth Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire will be held at locations around Providence on October 11, 2014. A collaboration between AS220 and Revolution x Design, and supported by Hasbro, this Maker Faire promises to be the biggest little showcase of New England DIY ingenuity!
