More about Maker Faire
This year’s mind-bending invention extravaganza features more art, more biz wizardry and more kid-focused fun than ever, plus a newmain stage filled with entertainment of all kinds, from music to circus acts and speed talks. Celebrity LeVar Burton will be our master maker emcee, adding geeky gravitas to the festivities.
Explore how the past fuels the future as we activate rarely-seen artifacts from the collections of The Henry Ford. Join us as we fire up historic arcade games, a century-old electric car and our massive steam engines. Even the artisans of Greenfield Village are crashing the midway this year with a new look at wheel-thrown pottery, a mobile glass hotshop and a nail punch tin activity for crafters.
Hard to describe and harder to forget, Maker Faire® Detroit is what happens when thousands of people share their beautiful, crazy genius with you. Enter as a curious visitor and leave as a maker in the spirit of American innovation.
