From tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers, Maker Faire is where novices and experts of all ages come together to show what they’ve made and share what they’ve learned. A community built on curiosity, collaboration, and resourcefulness.
What are you making?
Celebrate innovation, spark creativity, share skills, and connect the people and projects that are shaping the future by establishing a Maker Faire in your community, city, or region.

Collaborative, innovative, generative, and fun! School Maker Faire is a platform for students to show & tell what they’ve been making, share what they’re learning, and inspire their school community.
