Maker Faire is a family-friendly event which is open to people of all ages. It functions in the format Show & Tell - inventors and artists demonstrate their works and explain how they function and what meaning they have. The festival participants can also test the inventions.  



Maker Faire was initially launched in the USA. Similar festivals often take place in various cities across the world, but in Ukraine, such fairs are only starting to gain popularity.

The festival aims to be a forward-looking event, which showcases makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies. Many makers don't get a chance to present their projects and the event can help them gain recognition. The festival served as a platform for a number of events such as an exhibition, workshops, lectures, a career fair and an art-labyrinth.
