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!
Part science fair, part county fair, Maker Faire Milwaukee is a family-friendly festival that showcases the intersection of 21st-century technology and skills with education, science, arts, crafts, sustainability, and more.
The Faire offers free tickets so that everyone in the community can attend. Donations are accepted year-round.
So…what, exactly, can you do at the Faire? Glad you asked!
Talk to Makers: How did you make that? What tools did you use? Ask away! The list of Makers & Exhibitors will keep growing until we run out of space.
Learn a skill: how to solder or sew, use a jig, make a circuit…there are dozens of opportunities for makers of all ages. The Faire’s STEM/STEAM and career education programs kick off on October 14.
Connect with our growing Maker community: Meet educators, civic leaders, entrepreneurs, and others who want Milwaukee to be a Maker City. The positive impact of technology and local collaboration on education, equity, and economic opportunity has never been more clear.
