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!
Featuring local “makers,” Maker Faire Syracuse is a family-friendly celebration featuring all kinds of making and creating from traditional arts & crafts to high tech creations. Maker Faire Syracuse is hosting our inaugural faire on April 2, 2022.
COVID NOTE: The mask mandate in New York State has been lifted. Volunteers are encouraged, but not required, to wear a mask while attending the Maker Faire. We will continue to follow guidance of the CDC, NYS, and Onondaga County Executive regarding mask use and social distancing.
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.
