Canceled for 2021

Canceled for 2021

With heavy hearts but clear consciences…


…Maker Faire Wayne County team has made the decision to postpone the 2021 event.  This decision was made primarily out of concern for our community due to the unpredictable nature of the current coronavirus outbreaks.  We are also following guidance from both the CDC, the Ohio Dept. of Health, and the Governor’s office, that recommends canceling events of 250+ people and limiting travel.


We expect to have the actual date for 2022’s faire nailed down and will let you know as soon as we do.


Our apologies to our wonderful makers, volunteers, sponsors and vendors, but we do feel we are making the correct decision with respect to the health and comfort of all the wonderful people who participate and visit with us every year.


Be well, make cool things, and wash those hands!  🙂

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!
