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!

About Our Maker Faire

Maker Faire Denver is the first Feature Maker Faire in the Rocky Mountains and surrounding states! It features awe-inspiring maker creations, hands-on activities for makers of all ages, presentations and competitions. The 2017 Maker Faire Denver is host to Sparkfun’s AVC and Combat Bots, the largest combat bots competition between the two coasts! Also this year we will feature a Maker Fashion Show with Textile Arts Fun, a life sized interactive arcade experience by artist Cacheflow, and so much more. We are also dedicating ourselves to growing our engagement with social impact makers. If you are ready to show up and exhibit your creations, host a workshop, sponsor a section of the Faire, present a how-to on something you are making, hit the Call for Makers button and join us! 

Maker Faire Denver is produced by Colorado Maker Hub, a nonprofit organization that celebrates the Maker Movement and fosters the maker ecosystem. Everyday, we work to advance and connect Colorado makers – a vibrant community of tinkerers, tech enthusiasts, artists, educators, youth makers, inventors, hobbyists, science clubs, students and entrepreneurs. We host community Maker events, maker education programs and foster online collaboration. Essentially, we have a lot of fun! Learn more and become a member here.

 

The editors of Make: magazine created Maker Faire in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area, and it has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.  Read more:
