The 2014 DC Mini Maker Faire is free and open to the public. However, if you preregister to attend, it helps us to gauge how many people will be coming and will help us plan our exhibits and interactive displays so that we will have enough materials for everyone to take part and enjoy.
Stay up to date: follow us on Twitter @dcmakerfaire. See you in June!
