Don’t really know what a Maker Faire is? It’s a festival of arts, craft, and invention. Often referred to as, “The greatest show and tell on earth,” Maker Faires bring together educators, hobbyists, engineers, authors, artists, students, and enthusiasts of all ages to exhibit what they’ve made.
In addition to the exhibitions, there will be rides, lectures, workshops, food trucks, games, and more! The Hamilton Maker Faire is a free event, but to skip the line you can pre-register on their website. Free parking, bike parking, and HSR bus service are all available.
Interested in being a part of the show yourself? Hammer City Makers are still looking for people to share their creations – just apply on the website. Too shy to exhibit? You can still help out as a volunteer – contact them through their website for more information.
Whether you’ll be showcasing what you’ve made, or coming for the show, the family-friendly event is a perfect way to celebrate Father’s Day this year. So bring the family out June 21, to the Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology.
