What is MakerFest?
MakerFest is an event where makers can show off what they have made and how they made it. Think of it as a big-show-and-tell event. It provides an opportunity for people to gather, connect, and explore the processes, products, and joys of making. MakerFest is inspired by MAKE magazine’s annualMaker Faires, but is not affiliated with or endorsed by the MAKE brand or company. Features of the Fest include; displays, demonstrations, workshops, and hands-on activities.
MakerFest is a festival-style celebration of makers. A Maker is a person that engages in the process of making or producing something. Makers run the gamut from woodworkers, tinkerers, coders, crafters, to robot builders. The Maker movement includes amateurs, enthusiasts, hobbyists, innovators, and entrepreneurs.
MakerFest is a free, non-commercial, non-competitive, community-building event. It provides an opportunity for people to gather, connect, and explore the processes, products, and joys of making. The goal of MakerFest is to engage and excite youth, families, and adults to explore Maker/DIY (Do-It-Yourself) culture and become Makers themselves.
MakerFest is an inclusive event; gathering folks of all ages, ethnicities, cultures, genders, and sexual orientations.
Are you a Maker? Feature your DIY process in a family-friendly, hands-on, interactive exhibit at MakerFest, FREE.
Remember, you don’t have to be a maker to participate, simply Attend and Explore!
