Maker Faire Westport


Apr 21, 2018
10:00 AM until 04:00 PM


Maker Faire Westport is returning to Westport for its seventh year. This year’s Faire will be held on Saturday, April 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in downtown Westport, Connecticut. The event is free to attend.

“This year, our theme is #WeAreConnecticut where we will spotlight the people, places and organizations that make Connecticut a great place to live and work,” says Mark Mathias, Founder and Co-Chair of Maker Faire Westport. “We want to showcase the best of Connecticut and the surrounding areas.”

Up to five stages where attendees will be able to hear interesting people with compelling stories, panel discussions and engaging demonstrations. The unveiling of the PlasmaBot, the world’s largest glass and plasma marionette. At 9 feet tall, it’s an amazing piece of creativity, engineering and light

Many of the favorite attractions, such as the Nerdy Derby and 3D printers, will be at the Faire, but as more people hear about Maker Faire Westport, the event continues to expand to attract a wider creative audience.
