Maker Faire is the greatest show (and tell) on earth! It’s a family-friendly celebration of invention and creativity—a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.
Maker Faire Westport is the first and largest Maker Faire in Connecticut and largest single-day event in downtown Westport. Attendees come from all over Fairfield County, the tri-state area and beyond to spend the day in Westport and patronize local restaurants, shops and banks.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, artists, science clubs, students, authors and commercial exhibitors. They are of all ages and backgrounds. Maker Faire’s mission is to entertain, inform, connect and inspire these thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers.
The Maker Faire Westport is produced by Remarkable STEAM, Inc., a not-for-profit Connecticut corporation, in partnership with The Westport Library. Volunteers and the spirit of the community fuel the event. Sponsorship dollars help defray the cost of tents, generators, the stage, sound system, table rentals and signage. Sponsors receive not only recognition for supporting the event, but also association with a growing group of people interested in creativity, diversity, art, green technologies, sustainability, as well as science and engineering.
