Tourism

We are helping people see the value of Connecticut by promoting Connecticut as a tourist destination.

Our main event, Maker Faire Westport, is the state’s largest showcase of creativity and innovation. The majority of our attendees come from the tri-state area, but we frequently attract attendees and makers from around the world.

At Maker Faire Westport 2019, we built the world’s largest 3D printed duck, consisting of 476 parts individually 3D printed by people from as far away as India, Sweden and Australia. Many of the people who printed parts for the duck traveled to Westport, Connecticut solely to see the duck being built!

The team behind The Great Duck Project’s record setting world’s largest 3D printed duck and ducklings.

Other initiatives we offer attract people and include showcasing educational organizations as well as businesses that make Connecticut a great place to visit, live and work.
