Event Details


Organized by the staff of MAKE magazine, and, Maker Faire is a newfangled fair that brings together science, art, craft and engineering plus music in a fun, energized, and exciting public forum. The aim is to inspire people of all ages to roll up their sleeves and become makers. This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers – anyone who is embracing the DIY spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.

Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire is the officially licensed Faire showcasing the makers of Southwestern Pennsylvania and the larger region. From local robotics to guerilla knitters to kid inventors, our goal is to mount one of the most vibrant minis in the world. The first Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire in 2011 wowed over 1,000 participants and showcased 72 exhibiting makers.

The Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire will take place at Buhl Community Park at Allegheny Square, located on Pittsburgh’s historic North Side, across fromChildren’s Museum of Pittsburgh and the New Hazlett Theater. The park is located just blocks from the National AviaryWarhol Museum, PNC Park,Carnegie Science Center and Heinz Field.

About Maker Faire
Started in San Mateo, California in 2006, and now expanding to Detroit and New York, Maker Faire is the premier event for grassroots American innovation. Held annually in each of these locations, the event may expand elsewhere in the future. Maker Faire is supported by MAKE Magazine and O’Reilly Media, the premier information source for leading-edge computer technologies. The company’s books, conferences and web sites bring to light the knowledge of technology innovators.

Community-driven, independently produced Mini Maker Faires inspired by Maker Faire are now being produced around the United States, including Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire.
