Saturday & Sunday
September 12 & 13
The greatest show and tell on Earth, Maker Faire Orlando is a family-friendly celebration featuring local DIY science, art, rockets, robots, crafts, hands-on activities and more. A two-day festival where inventors, artists, scientists and tinkerers collide. It’s a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning. With something for everyone, it’s one weekend you won’t want to miss.
The first Maker Faire, organized by the editors of MAKE magazine, started in 2006 in San Mateo, California. Branching off from the flagship Faires in the Bay Area and New York City are community-driven “Mini” Maker Faires. Last year, Orlando was recognized as a “featured” Maker Faire and was expanded to a two-day extravaganza. Orlando shares this distinction with only 14 other Featured Maker Faires worldwide in cities like Tokyo, Paris, Atlanta and Rome. This year, the can’t-miss event has grown even larger and will extend from the Science Center to the Orlando Museum of Art and include food trucks!
