Maker Faire Is Coming To Denver!

Maker Faire is an annual festival to make, create, learn, invent, craft, hack, recycle, build, think, play and be inspired. Originating in Silicon Valley and engaging over 120,000 people annually, Maker Faire is a multi-generational gathering that is sweeping across the country and around the world.  And now it is coming to Denver!

 The maker community crosses boundaries of science and art, young and old, craftsmanship and technology, coming together to create the innovation economy.  The things we make define us as a society and build our future.  The people who invent, create, and make have the power to change the world.

Denver Mini Maker Faire will launch here in Colorado, May 3rd & 4th, 2014, at the National Western Complex with an expected:

  • 10-15,000 attendees and Makers
  • A life sized fire breathing dragon and artwork like you’ve never seen
  • Robotics experiences, the Sound Puddle, SparkFun Electronics and leading edge tech tinkering
  • Spinning and weaving, engaging craft projects, and a Nerdy Derby
  • Entrepreneurs, inventors, artists, hackers, DIY enthusiasts, vendors and all the lunacy that you’ve come to expect from a Maker Faire.

On Saturday and Sunday May 3rd & 4th 2014  Denver Mini Maker Faire Weekend

We open the doors to “The Greatest Show and Tell on Earth” to thousands of families, kids and kids-at-heart of all ages.  You’ve never seen anything like this!  Over two hundred Makers and thousands of attendees of all ages will participate in exciting exhibitions, demonstrations and hands-on activities for all ages while enjoying interesting presentations/speakers, live music, and visual/performing arts.

Saturday Evening VIP Event Idea-2-Market Showcase

During this Business-to-Business reception the future of making and manufacturing using new technologies will be highlighted as Colorado manufacturers, entrepreneurs and suppliers will gather to connect for collaborative opportunities to grow their businesses.

Save the date for this exciting extravaganza – but more importantly, start your projects!  Our Call for Makers officially opens January 1, 2014.  We look forward to seeing your ideas!
