WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Library has issued a Call for Makers to participate in the fifth annual Mini Maker Faire on April 30.

“Every year, the Westport Mini Maker Faire continues to attract talent that inspires and amazes attendees,” said Mark Mathias, founder and co-chair of the event. “With a planned attendance this year of 10,000, we expect a record number of makers as well as attendees.

"We also look forward to announcing some incredible makers as well as leaving a few experiences to surprise and delight people when they arrive.”

This year's theme will be "five" in all its possible configurations. Makers who incorporate the theme and demonstrate the positive impact makers and making have on the community will receive special recognition.

Creative, innovative individuals and companies are invited to apply to participate in the fair and show their wares, inventions and creations.

“Makers who apply early and are accepted will be promoted through social media as early as February. This can help makers increase awareness and let attendees get a sneak peak regarding what to expect,” said Alex Giannini, the library’s manager of Experiential Learning and co-chair of the event. “Makers that have a connection to either of this year’s themes will receive additional publicity.”

Mini Maker Faire will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Westport Library and on adjacent grounds on April 30.
