The Cincinnati Maker Faire will be a celebration of creativity and invention. Makers will showcase what they make, inspiring others with their passion and teaching the skills necessary for invention. From robots and microprocessors to experimental music and jewelry, any and every act of making will be on display.
This year we have about 100 different activities and exhibits including power tool drag racing, Drums that shoot fireballs, a concert played entirely on vintage Gameboys, unique gifts like home grown crystals and much much more!
ABOUT MAKER FAIRE
Maker Faire is the World’s Largest DIY festival—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors, and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds. Maker Faire’s mission is to entertain, inform, connect and inspire these thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers.
The inaugural Maker Faire was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2011 celebrated its sixth annual Bay Area event with some 100,000 people in attendance. As Maker Faire has grown in popularity and relevance, additional flagship faires were launched in 2010 in Detroit and New York City. Community-driven, independently produced Mini Maker Faire events inspired by Maker Faire are now being produced around the United States and the world, including Cincinnati Mini Maker Faire.
