The Wenatchee Mini Maker Faire was started in 2015 under the organization of students from Wenatchee Mini Maker Faire. More than 20 students volunteered to organize and run the entire process in the inaugural year. The Wenatchee Mini Maker Faire was the first Mini Maker Faire in the world produced by students and has paved a way for students in other cities to follow.
