Exciting family-friendly Show & Tell for the whole family from people who love to MAKE, BUILD, INNOVATE and LEARN!
Innovation comes in many different forms and spheres of interest; from ancient art forms to new and futuristic technology. Makers will display various DIY science and technology projects, educational workshops, wearable creations, robots, hand-made crafts, whimsical displays & art, inventions, everyday hacks and more!
The passion and dedication of exhibitors is what makes this event truly fun. You will be directly in contact with the Makers, who will take time to teach and instruct you through hands-on demonstrations. Interactive exhibits are a staple of Maker Faire!
Workshops will be ongoing throughout the day, for old and young to create (among other things) Nerdy Derby racecars, cosplay fabrication, silkscreened t-shirts*, soldering projects, wood burning art and cardboard forts! Workshops and hands-on activities are included with admission. Minimal fees may be required to cover material of Make-and-Take activities.
*There will be a workshop for you to learn about silkscreen printing where you can print your very own Saskatoon Mini Maker Faire shirt! You are welcome to bring your own plain T-Shirt, fabric bag, apron, … any fabric you would like to have this year’s graphics printed on for FREE. (Ink might be white or black so bring a coloured shirt.) Blank T-Shirts will be available for purchase ($10).

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine. It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.
