Maker Fair

Are you an artist, tinkerer, crafter, or maker?
You’re invited to participate in Westmont Public Library’s Maker Fair!

We’re looking for individuals, organizations, and businesses from the community to show off their creations, do demonstrations, and mix and mingle with other makers and attendees. Maker Fair will be a free and open celebration of creativity, hosted at the library on the afternoon of Saturday, April 21, 2018 from noon – 4 pm.

If you’d like to be a part, fill out an application here or pick one up at the library. Please note that there will be no sales allowed during the fair, but we encourage you to make connections, spread inspiration, swap skills, and talk about your latest, most exciting projects!

For questions or more information, contact us at [email protected].
