The seventh annual Maker Faire Westport will take place on Saturday, April 21, 2018, throughout downtown Westport. 12,000 attendees are expected. This year's theme for the event is #WeAreConnecticut and will highlight the people, places and organizations that make Connecticut a great place to live and work.
"We are looking for creative people who want to share their energy and talents with others," says Mark Mathias, Founder and Co-Chair of Maker Faire Westport. "We are inviting artists, musicians, engineers, craftsmen, entrepreneurs, students, teachers, businesspeople, comedians and creative people of all ages and backgrounds to inspire attendees with what we as humans can do."
"Our expanded venues and multiple stages will give makers the opportunity to not only have space to engage our attendees but be on stages to speak about, demonstrate and interact with interested, curious people," says Alex Giannini, Manager of Experiential Learning at the Westport Library and Co-Chair of Maker Faire Westport.
