6th Maker Faire Wayne County (new location for 2024)

Start Date
End Date
9 AM - 3 PM
Wayne County Fair Event Center, 199 Vanover St., Wooster

It will be a joint event with the A.C. Gilbert Heritage Society, offering their national convention at the same time, same place! 

Maker Faire showcases the amazing work of all kinds and ages of makers—anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience.  It is 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 is for all ages, adults and kids alike.  Remember, this is Maker Faire, so “hands-on” exhibits are given priority. We want kids and adults to be able to touch and feel things, make things, and learn!

 The Call For Makers is now open for the 6th Maker Faire Wayne County!  Participation is free.  You can apply with our online application here.  You can also apply via postal mail or telephone.  Signup deadline is April 1st. 

Number 6 is going to be bigger than ever as makers come to the Wayne County Fairgrounds with incredible innovation and creativity.  Remember, space is limited so you have to apply as soon as possible to ensure that you get your spot at the greatest show (& tell) on earth!  

There are several main types of applicants for Maker Faire. You can apply for a Maker Exhibit, Presentation, or Demonstration. Each has their own criteria for acceptance which you can read about more while filling out the form.  Be sure to have a nice picture (that you have the rights to share) as well as a bio ready to give us. This information will be on-display on our site and at the event.
