2019 marks Maker Faire’s 7th year in Cleveland!  Are you ready? This year’s event is bigger and better than ever and is offered in a great, new venue.  Thanks to a brand new partnership, this year’s Faire graduates from a Mini Maker Faire to Maker Faire Cleveland and takes over the Great Lakes Science Center for a full day of Maker fun!

Maker Faire celebrates Cleveland’s spirit of ingenuity, exploration, invention and just plain fun.  There’s something for everyone with an emphasis on hands-on action: touch, try, test and tweak, build, break, bust and bedazzle, launch, lift, light and learn, scout, sculpt, seek and show, explore, elaborate, engage and, most of all, enjoy!

Get your hands on cutting edge technology and cool projects.

Enjoy workshops led by expert Makers.

And, get ready to have your mind blown over and over again!

What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.

We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Glimpse the future and get inspired!
