2014 Burlington Mini Maker Faire

Maker Faire is a celebration of creativity, craftsmanship, art, play, and learning and its coming back to Burlington NC for its second year at the Holly Hill Mall and Business Center on Saturday April 12th!

We invite you and your family to come out for a fun time at Holly Hill Mall and Business Center here in Burlington NC. Visit the makers, builders, inventors, artists, programmers, educators, and boffins of the Alamance Makers Guild and other great NC Makers. Interact with cool projects, meet robots, learn about 3D printing, make something with your own two hands, get your steampunk on, learn to solder, share your own ideas, and much more!

Come out and be inspired to make something new yourself! Be a part of our growing maker community!



Admission to our maker faire is free for everyone!  We’re also going to give away some door prizes made by our makers and donated by our sponsors for folks who register for free tickets and bring the printout with them to the faire.

Gather up the kids, grab Grandma and Grandpa, pile your neighbors in the car and head out to the Maker Faire at Holly Hill Mall on Saturday April 12th 2014!  We look forward to seeing you there!

The Burlington Mini Maker Faire is a community project of the Alamance Makers Guild, a social group of makers that formed in July of 2011.  It is our goal to open a Maker Space for Alamance County and one way of making that happen is by connecting to the community through Maker Faire and helping folks learn about the Maker Movement.  If you’d like to be a part of our group, attend our meetings and special events, share or exhibit your own projects, or just check us out then use the following resources:

Help us Spread the Word!

Maker Faire is all about community and so we are asking you to help us spread the word about the Burlington Mini Maker Faire.  Contact your friends, share this page, post about us on facebook, mention us @AlamanceMakers #BurlingtonMakerFaire on Twitter.  If you or your family, friends, or neighbors live within comfortable driving distance from our events, then share this with them!


The Burlington Mini Maker Faire isn’t the first or the only Maker Faire here in the great state of North Carolina. The first NC Maker Faire was held in Durham in 2010, and for the last three years its been held in the Kerr Scott Building at the NC State Fair Grounds in Raleigh. Our Maker Faire is meant as a sister event to our big brother in Raleigh, inspired by their tenacity and bringing Making to the Piedmont Triad region.

The 2013 Maker Faire North Carolina event was held earlier this year on June 15th and beat their own expectations for attendance (more than 5000 people came to see the big show!)  In fact they’ve grown large enough they may have to find a new home for 2014!  You can learn more at their website and fan page:

Keep June 2014 clear on your calendars to support Maker Faire NC!
