Rocklin Mini-Maker Faire Celebrates 5th Year

More than 3,500 community members attended the 2019 Rocklin Mini-Maker Faire, organized by the City of Rocklin and hosted at Sierra College’s Rocklin campus.  The family-friendly event included more than 95 vendors, 10 Sierra CTE programs, the Sierra Makerspaces team, and Hacker Lab and the Curious Forge makerspaces – all sharing fun and informational activities with children and their parents.  At the end of the day, Faire-goers went to the Dietrich Theatre to see the Reinvent the Runway show, with 35 entries featuring unique designs using recycled items.
