The event includes a technology fair, social media workshops, three live bands and food.

The technology fair will take place at the Danbury Ice Arena with demonstrations and interactive events. Exhibitors range from tech enthusiasts and crafters to scientists and “garage tinkerers,” according to a city of Danbury press release.

Social media workshops will take place at 10:30 a.m., noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the Paul Mitchell School and Danbury Ice Arena. Talks will include topics like crowd funding, branding, marketing, Twitter and LinkedIn.

The CityCenter Danbury and the Greater Danbury Chamber of Commerce are partnering with the city of Danbury to present the event. Event sponsors include Hearst Media Services, NewOak, Matrix Corporate Center and Savings Bank of Danbury.
