The Fredonia Mini Maker Faire is seeking makers to participate in the annual event. Makers can be students, faculty, staff or community members. 

Join the Circus of Creativity at a Maker Meetup and informative social gathering on Tuesday, Sept. 24, from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m., in Williams Center Room S-204ABC.

The Maker Meetup is sponsored by Erie 2-Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES and Fredonia in cooperation with MAKE magazine ahead of the much-anticipated Fourth Fredonia Mini Maker Faire set for Saturday, Oct.19, on the Fredonia campus.

Registration is now open for those interested in applying to be a featured Maker at this free all-day celebration, the only one of its kind in the Chautauqua region.

The meetup is designed to unite a community of inspiring individuals in the Chautauqua region. Makers are tech enthusiasts, designers, do-it-yourselfers, artists, crafters, homesteaders, tinkerers, educators, students, farmers, hobbyists, engineers, authors, scientists and beyond. If you think you are a Maker, you probably are, and organizers would like to encourage individuals to share their skills with others.

Those attending are asked to please consider bringing along some examples of work and share the process behind their passions and pursuits. Makers will discuss their work, learn about the Maker Faire and have an opportunity to register. Everyone is welcome. Pizza and refreshments will be served.

After reviewing thousands of nominations from across the country, the village of Fredonia has been named a Top 10 Finalist for Season 5 of "Small Business Revolution." One of the ways we can show Fredonia is unique from the other towns in the Top 10 is the strong and positive relationship between the college and the community. We want to demonstrate to the show's producers how much SUNY Fredonia is engaged with the village of Fredonia.
