June 24, 2014 Updated Sep 11, 2014 at 7:51 AM EDT

The Fort Wayne Regional Maker Faire® – Powered by TekVenture is set to take place September 13 & 14 at Headwaters Park East - Lincoln Pavilion.This is like no other event in that guests participate in experiential learning such as how to weld or solder while learning how Makers of the region and beyond go about turning their ideas into reality. Cirque AmongsUs will also be back for our 4th year so guests will again get to learn circus performance art and ride alternative vehicles.
TekVenture is a family-friendly event to MAKE, create, learn, invent, CRAFT, recycle, think, play and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology.
TekVenture provides an environment offering space, tools, materials and mentors where the community can realize their creative potential, satisfy their need to make things and talk shop with other Makers. 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.

Music, food, and workshops will be available to help curb those cravings for great entertainment and eating locally produced food. This event is also unique in that guests get to learn cool things about Makers, their projects and the tools, materials, and processes used to make them. Who knows which idea will change the world. We hope you'll find that maybe you're a Maker too!

Have you ever seen a Shire bone-shaker or an Ariel highwheeler? Are these words as foreign to you as they were to this writer? Come to Maker Faire and learn about these keys to the history of the bicycle from an exhibit presented by The Bicycle Museum of America.

We are so lucky to have wonderful musicians in Fort Wayne and the surrounding area. We're also excited about the great artists playing at our Faire. An added bonus is Rob Rider of Rider Productions, is stage manager so the sound quality will also be great.
