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

Maker Faire North Little Rock typically takes place on a Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm at the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub. Due to concerns regarding the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, we have decided to postpone the 6th Annual fair until 2021.


What is it?

Maker Faire North Little Rock is a one-day exhibition of creative making. Think of it as a local version of Maker Faire Bay Area or World Maker Faire New York, two yearly exhibitions organized by Make Magazine.


Maker Faire North Little Rock will host exhibitors, vendors, workshop teachers, panelists and performers from around the region and will take place at the Arkansas Regional Innovation Hub in the Argenta District of downtown North Little Rock.


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: Community.  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.
