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 The Southcoast Mini Maker Faire

The Southcoast Mini Maker Faire came to Fall River in 2016 when local entrepreneur Christopher Nielsen introduced the concept to the YMCA and other local community leaders. “Since Fall River has a  rich history in manufacturing and generally as a great place to make stuff, this seemed like a natural fit for the goals of the city as a featured annual event.” The community agreed and the maker faire movement is now alive and growing in Fall River as the plans for 2017 are underway.

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.
