Event Description

July 11, 2013 Updated Sep 6, 2013 at 10:29 AM EDT

The 3rd Annual Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire® – Powered by TekVenture is set to take place September 14 & 15 at Headwaters Park East - Lincoln Pavilion. Guests will again get to ride alternative vehicles; participate in experiential learning such as how to weld or solder, and learn how Makers of the region and beyond go about turning their ideas into reality. Music, food, and workshops will be available to help curb those cravings for great entertainment and eating locally produced food. This event is unique in that guests also get to learn cool things about Makers, their projects and the tools, materials, and processes they use to make them. Who knows which idea will change the world. We hope that maybe you'll find that you're a Maker too!

Mark your calendars and stay tuned for event updates. We're currently looking for attraction ideas such as fun art cars, speakers, or quirky things in which the public might be interested. There will also be projects to build so visit us at the Maker Faire to see what new skills you might learn.

If you like to tinker or are passionate about technology, art making, or any other projects you are building in your basement or backyard and you want to share it with others but didn't know how, this is the event for you. Free to Makers who just want to share their ideas, all one has to do to apply is submit your Call for Makers

Thanks to Jim Fisler for being our first registered Maker for 2013! He will share how he's using liquid resin to form a functional PC case.

This is a community driven event serving as a fundraiser for TekVenture so if interested in exhibiting, volunteering, racing, or sponsoring, we’d love to hear from you at
