Tinker. Hack. Invent. Make.
Maker Faire Detroit is two days of unconventional ingenuity, unbridled creativity and a whole lot of forward thinking. If it’s made, it’s displayed at Maker Faire Detroit, July 28-29, only at The Henry Ford.
Maker Faire Detroit is an event for those drawn by a curiosity for the unorthodox, whimsical MacGyver-like nature of Makers and their products. More than 400 makers bring their ideas, inventions and solutions to this two-day festival offering everything from robots, flame shooters and animatronics to solar-powered mechanical sculptures and fashionable finds.
There is something for every Maker in the family among the arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and more. So roll up your sleeves and make something.
History of Maker Faire
Started in San Mateo, California in 2006, and now expanding to Detroit and New York, Maker Faire is the premier event for grassroots American innovation. Held annually in each of these locations, the event may expand elsewhere in the future. Maker Faire is supported by MAKE Magazine and O’Reilly Media, the premier information source for leading-edge computer technologies. The company’s books, conferences and websites bring to light the knowledge of technology innovators.
