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 Maker Faire Calgary

October 28 & 29, 2017 – Spruce Meadows – Equi-Plex

Maker Faire Calgary began in 2012 and has become an annual event that those in the know excitedly look forward to. This is our 6th year and we have many surprises in store for you. Also, we’ve lowered admission prices, made parking free, and free shuttle bus service from the C-Train. We want it easy for families to affordably attend this enriching showcase of creativity.

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.
