About the Maker Faire:
The Maker Faire originated in the USA. The Americans speak of “The Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth” and mean that a Maker Faire is on the one hand an inventors’ fair, on the other hand a kind of fair and at the same time something completely new. It is a family-friendly festival for innovation, creativity and technology.
Makers come together here to present their projects to a broad public. Makers are do-it-yourselfers who enjoy experimenting, creative minds, technology enthusiasts and can be found in all age groups. They are eager to learn, but also to impart knowledge and are happy to share their inventions and experiences. For some exhibitors, their presence at the Maker Faire is also the start of a successful start-up.
“Touching and trying things out” is very important. At every Maker Faire there are many interesting hands-on stations, supplemented by exciting lectures and workshops. Children and schoolchildren will be inspired in a creative and playful way for science, technology and the fun handling of materials and tools. The focus is on having fun.
In April 2016, the Maker Faire made its first stop in Vienna. In 2023, the Maker Faire will take place for the fifth time in Vienna after a 3-year break due to the pandemic.
