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

A Maker Faire is about celebrating learning and doing – not just the finished and perfect end product. It’s a place to show projects, and share what we’re learning with others.

The Bowling Green Mini Maker Faire is a community festival that brings together science, art, craft, homesteading and engineering plus food, workshops, and even impromptu music/performance.

Attendees will meet many makers showing and explaining projects of all sorts and sizes; participate in hands-on workshops and making across tech, craft, science, and more. This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers of Bowling Green and beyond. This will be our first Mini Maker Fair and we are excited to start an annual tradition of sharing the maker spirit.

Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine.  It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.  Read more on Maker Faire history, the Maker Movement, as well as how to start a Maker Faire or a School Maker Faire where you live.
