Maker Faire is the greatest show (and tell) on earth! It’s a family-friendly celebration of invention and creativity—a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.
Maker Faire Connecticut is the first and largest Maker Faire in Connecticut and the Northeast’s largest creativity and innovation event.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds. Maker Faire’s mission is to entertain, inform, connect and inspire these thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers.
Maker Faire Connecticut is produced by Remarkable STEAM, Inc., a not-for-profit Connecticut corporation. Volunteers and the spirit of the community fuel the event. Sponsorship dollars help defray the cost of tents, generators, the stages, sound system, rentals, signage, security, police and fire, insurance and more. Sponsors receive not only recognition for supporting the event, but also association with a growing group of people interested in creativity, diversity, art, green technologies, sustainability, as well as science and engineering.
