Maker Faire 2018

Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

In 2010 we organized the first Mini Maker Faire in Canada here in the city of Ottawa. Last year, we leveled up to become the first Canadian Feature Faire, joining a global network of 20 of the most interesting cities in the world including Berlin, Rome, Tokyo and Shenzhen. Our event will rise to the occasion, highlighting the creative spirit, powerful entrepreneurial energy and incredible curiosity of the city and its people.

For one spectacular weekend, the Canada Science and Technology Museum will be transformed into a model Maker City, a showcase of human ingenuity and imagination to entertain, inform and inspire. Maker Faire Ottawa takes its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centres around the world. It will be a prototype for a community of tomorrow, always unfinished, always introducing, and testing, and demonstrating new materials and new systems.
