Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.
We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Glimpse the future and get inspired!
Maker Faire Tulsa is an award-winning, family-friendly event celebrating technology, education, science, arts, crafts, engineering, food, sustainability, and making of all kinds. In 2020, Fab Lab Tulsa celebrates our eighth maker faire anniversary and third year as one of just 30 Featured Faires in the world.
Maker Faire is an event created by MAKE Magazine. Whether as hobbyists or professionals, makers are creative, resourceful and curious, developing projects that demonstrate how they can interact with the world around them. Maker Faire Tulsa highlights Tulsa’s own Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset.
The 8th Annual Maker Faire Tulsa will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on August 29th in the Exchange Center at Expo Square. Our goal is to make visible the projects and ideas that we don’t encounter every day.
Maker Faire Tulsa is hosted by Fab Lab Tulsa, a non-profit makerspace located in the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood of Tulsa. Fab Lab Tulsa provides education, community, workforce and business programming that teaches innovation, design-thinking, problem-solving and change-making, together with open and equitable access to 21st Century digital fabrication tools, equipment and technology.
Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine. It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.
