What is Maker Faire?

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!

About Our Maker Faire

What is it?

The North Little Rock Mini Maker Faire is a one day exhibition of creative making. Think of North Little Rock Maker Faire as a local version of Maker Faire Bay Area or World Maker Faire New York, two yearly exhibitions organized by Make Magazine. North Little Rock Mini Maker Faire is one of over 100 “mini” faires around the globe, organized by local grassroots makers.

North Little Rock Mini Maker Faire will host exhibitors, vendors, workshop teachers, panelists and performers from around the region. The faire will take place at the North Shore Riverwalk.

The event is outside, rain-or-shine, and open to the public.

About Maker Faire

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.  Read more on Maker Faire history, the Maker Movement, as well as how to start a Maker Faire or a School Maker Faire where you live.
