About Glasgow Mini Maker Faire:

Glasgow is a city of innovators, creators, and problem solvers.

To celebrate and showcase this, in 2018 we’re launching Glasgow’s Maker Faire. An annual summer event for everyone to come along and enjoy a fun day of invention and creativity on the Clyde.

Maker Faire is a community festival bringing together engineering, arts, crafts, music, inventions, science and performance by a variety of makers. A gathering designed to promote idea sharing, learning, workshop participation, and hands-on creative activities.

It’s one fun-filled day exploring all the cool projects often hidden away in basements, garages, labs, and makerspaces. This event teases out all that creativity and showcases the passion of the people who build marvelous things. Expect to leave amazed and inspired to make.

 

About Maker Faire:

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2016 celebrated its eleventh annual show with some 1300 makers and 150,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in five years to 900+ makers and 90,000 attendees. Thirty-one larger scale Maker Faires occur in cities around the world—Detroit, Atlanta, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shenzhen to name a few— and over 150 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced in the United States and in 34 other countries around the world.
