It is with regret that, due to circumstances beyond our immediate control, we are canceling the DaVinci’s Faire event scheduled for February 2, 2019 at Manatee Technical College. It is not often that anyone gets the opportunity to build such a strong community of interested and dedicated fans, and to provide value to an all-ages community of renaissance thinkers, makers, inventors, scientists, technologists, and do-ers. For that, we are ever grateful to the special people around us.
We would like to thank our sponsors, partners, volunteers and those fans for their interest and devotion to what began 10 years ago as BarCamp Sarasota-Bradenton. We have come a long ways since then, and we don’t currently know what the future has in store for DaVinci’s Faire. Please watch this space for new ideas and happenings. Thank you, and faire well.
Stan Schultes & Sara Hand.
What is DaVinci’s Faire anyway?
DaVinci’s Faire is a multi-generational sensory-rich community engagement centered on science, technology, makers, inventors and lifelong learners in a unique open-spaces format.
DaVinci’s Faire can be described in three words: Share ~ Learn ~ Grow.
Every attendee – no matter how old or young – has a story to tell and an expertise to share.
DaVinci’s Faire is a Free Community Event supported by a group of dedicated volunteers, Manatee County Schools, Library services and kept free with the help of our generous sponsors.
