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

The Maker Faire is coming to Windsor! The first annual Windsor-Essex Mini Maker Faire is scheduled for 10am- 3pm Saturday February 24, 2018 at St. Clair College.  And it’s FREE!

The Windsor-Essex Mini Maker Faire takes after other large Maker Faire events such as Maker Faire Detroit. The Windsor-Essex Mini Maker Faire will be a smaller, community-focused event, but will follow the Maker Faire model of celebrating do-it-yourself creativity and tinkering.

Featuring both established and emerging local “makers,” the inaugural Windsor-Essex Mini Maker Faire is a family-friendly celebration featuring student projects, robotics, DIY science and technology, urban farming and sustainability, alternative energy, unique hand-made crafts, and interactive art projects.

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.
