What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.

We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Glimpse the future and get inspired!

Sobre a Alentejo Mini Maker Faire

Somos uma equipa focada em desenvolver o Alentejo, e esta feira é mais um grande passo para o desenvolvimento regional.

Evento acolhido pela ADRAL – Agência de Desenvolvimento Regional do
Alentejo, S.A. cujo objeto social é a promoção do desenvolvimento regional do Alentejo e o
fortalecimento da sua base económica e produtiva, em cooperação com os demais
agentes e entidades da região, do País ou de outros países, nomeadamente dos

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.  Read more on Maker Faire history, the Maker Movement, as well as how to start a Maker Faire or a School Maker Faire where you live.
