July 30-31, 2016
Maker Faire® is like a three-ring circus of innovation. Robotics, electronics, rockets, food, music, fashion, science — if somebody makes it, we’ll find a place for it at Maker Faire® Detroit. This is, without doubt, one of the most unusual and mind-boggling events to ever find a home in Detroit. Maker Faire® is a place where the DIY mindset can run wild. Inspiring and ingenious, with more than a little humor mixed in, this eye-popping gathering is one of the country’s smartest and most extraordinary family-friendly events. Hundreds of exhibiting makers are expected to participate, offering dozens of demonstrations and hands-on workshops for anyone — child or adult — who still has a sense of adventure. Only at the home of innovation, The Henry Ford.
NEW! For the seventh annual event, the giant fighting robot from Team USA comes to life as MegaBots heads to Maker Faire® Detroit to battle it out. A shuttle service sponsored by the University of Michigan-Dearborn will also be available at its Fairlane campus at 19000 Hubbard Dr. in Dearborn.
Add The Magical History Tour: A Beatles Memorabilia Exhibition for an additional $5.00.
