Maker Faire Orlando 


Maker Faire Orlando is a community-organized, family-friendly celebration featuring local do-it-yourself science, art, rockets, robots, crafts, technology, music, hands-on-activities, and more. It’s an event where people show what they are making and share what they are learning.

Maker Faire Orlando is produced by The Maker Effect Foundation, and is supported by community partners such as FamiLAB, Factur, MakerFXTampa Hackerspace, the Maitland Art & History Museums, the Orlando Science Center and the Orange County Library System.
