Go DIY at Maker Faire Orlando Oct 21-22, 2017

Maker Faire Orlando

Florida’s largest Maker event, Maker Faire Orlando, returns to the Central Florida Fairgrounds the weekend of Oct 21-22 with a ton of fun DIY activities.

Maker Faire Orlando is a non-profit, 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. The individuals behind these exhibits are known as “Makers” and they range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

Make t-shirts and buttons, learn to solder, watch robot battles and drone racing, and so much more throughout this weekend.


A two-day pass in advance is $25 for adults and $15 for kids ages 4-12. A one-day pass is $15 adults and $10 for kids. Tickets are more at the door, so purchase online at makerfaireorlando.com.

Some activities require a nominal fee of $1-$6, payable at the event.

Presale ticket purchasers will be entered into a drawing to win a Deltamaker 3D printer package valued at over $2500.
