What:      The Western New York Regional Maker Faire  

The Western New York Regional 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, and DIY projects.  We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.


In an effort to make the Western New York Regional Maker Faire accessible to all of the members of our WNY community, tickets are free.  The typical visitor spends about 2 hours at the Faire, but this varies by levels of interest and the number of activities you participate in.  There are a variety of free and small fee activities throughout the Faire.

Event FAQ:

Where is the list of exhibitors and activities?
The list of exhibitors will be added to the website page as they are approved.

Who is putting this event on? 
A team of Western New York community volunteers who believe that making and sharing is an important aspect to learning and growing as individuals and a hallmark to a rich and vibrant community. We are all volunteers! Thank us when you see us!

What is your relationship to Maker Media, the producers of “the big Maker Faire?”
The folks at Maker Media support over 225 licensed and independently-produced Maker Faires in almost 50 countries around the world. They want to spread Maker culture, and they have a very open approach to doing that. We are inspired not only by their event, but by their philosophy. If you like Maker Faire or just making stuff in general, you should subscribe to Make: magazine – makezine.com

Can I bring my pet? 
Sorry.  No. Service animals however are allowed.

What if it rains? 
The show will go on! Bring rain gear to keep you dry when walking outdoors. Fortunately, we will have many indoor exhibits to keep the family dry.

What can I expect?
To have a fantastic time! As you wander by table after table of new hobbies, crafts, work and sometimes just fun, remember the idea of the Maker Faire is the world’s largest Show and Tell, the makers are there to answer questions, to engage with you, and hopefully one or two will make a maker out of you so that you can present next year.
