Honolulu Mini Maker Faire 2015

The 2014 Honolulu Mini Maker Faire was such a success that we’ve given the green light to start planning for 2015.  If you attended the event this year, please take the survey and let us know what you thought.  This will help us make the 2015 event to be even better.

Quick Survey to Help Improve the Event

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you, our volunteers, the makers, and our sponsors for making our first Mini Maker Faire a huge success. We had over 750 attendees, and we are hoping to get your feedback on the event as soon as possible.

Please fill out a quick (<5 minute) survey this week by Friday March 21st if possible.


We’d also ask that you post your stories and links to photos (see examples) to our Facebook page, Twitter: @MakerFaireHNL, Google+: Honolulu Mini Maker Faire, or just send us an email at


We have a limited quantity of Honolulu’s first Mini Maker Faire T-Shirts (courtesy of 88 Tees) still available. Proceeds ($10 suggested donation) will be used to help sustain the Mini Maker Faire and make it a regular event.

Pick-up information for the T-shirts will be provided to everyone who provides their contact and requested size information here.

This year’s event was an all-volunteer run effort – with no cost for participation by makers or attendees. If you are interested in possibly sponsoring next year’s event, participating as a maker, as a volunteer, or as a member of the organizing committee, please let us know – send us an e-mail at hnlmakerfaire@gmail.com.


Makers, you all were  astounding. There were so many attendees who commented that they were amazed at the diversity of interests represented at the Mini Maker Faire.  Thank you all for participating and making the event a success!

It’s Over!

Wow, that was amazing!  There was a constant flow of people starting at 11, one hour before the official opening, and it lasted right up to 5pm.  A huge thank you to ‘Iolani School.  There were so many comments about how fantastic the Sullivan center was.  There will be more updates about the event later but for now I think we all need to take a breath and recover.

Map of Event is Available

Here is a map of the event.  The Honolulu Mini Maker Faire will be on two floors of the Sullivan Center at ‘Iolani School.  Start off at the third floor where you can get your special Maker participation sticker at the registration table and see some of the Makers.  The workshops will be held in the seminar room on this floor.  The special edition Honolulu Mini Maker Faire t-shirts will be available next to the registration table.  It’s only $10 and proceeds will be used to help sustain the Mini Maker Faire and make it a regular event.

The first floor will have more Makers as well as the soldering class and the Bristle Bot construction center.  The blacksmith will be around the corner shaping metal with fire!  Kau Kau Grill will be selling lunch and there will be places to sit and eat in the covered area.
