Maker Faire Pittsburgh 2016

Featured Programs & Events

October 15, 2016

Maker Faire Pittsburgh is the region’s largest showcase of creativity,  invention and innovation!

Part science faire, part show and tell, and part carnival, the two-day Faire features all kinds of makers, with projects ranging from high-tech to low, artisan to geek, amateur to professional, and practical to ridiculous. One of hundreds of Maker Faires held throughout the world, Maker Faire Pittsburgh is a celebration of the do-it-yourselfiness, creativity and ingenuity of makers young and old. And everyone is a maker!

The Faire features displays and exhibits in technology, art, craft, electronics, and more, including student projects, robotics, textile arts and crafts, drones, rockets, electric vehicles, music, bicycles, unusual tools or machines and more.  It also features special performances, speakers, demonstrations and workshops.

TIckets start at just $5!
