NoVa Mini Maker Faire in Reston on Sunday Mar. 15

On Sunday, March 15 Reston will once again host the NoVa Mini Maker Faire 2015. MakerFaire is "a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community."

This year's event will include a "Bike Builder" exhibit with noted bike builder Bill Cook of Barcroft Cycles, Tim Fricker of bikes@vienna, as well as Rick Landers and Dr. Craig Clark of Reston's Pedestrian and Bicycling Advisory Committee. Homebuilt bikes will likely include one long wheelbase (LWB) recumbent, a sport trike, a tandem recumbent (record holder) and a traditional upright bike.

Attendees are encouraged to bike to the event. There will be no on-site parking. You can either take Metro or park for free at the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station and take a free shuttle bus to the event. Bike valet parking will be provided for cyclists:
We highly encourage those living in or near to Reston or who can to ride your bike to the Faire! We will provide free, safe, and secure bike valet. Additionally, you can take the Silver Line to Wiehle-Reston East station, exit the South side and follow the map and signs!
