Florida’s largest Maker event, Maker Faire Orlando, returns to the Central Florida Fairgrounds the weekend of November 13-14, 2021, with a ton of fun DIY activities.
Individuals behind the exhibits are known as ‘Makers’ and range from tech enthusiasts to crafters and scientists to garage tinkerers of all ages and backgrounds.
The two-day event is expected to draw 15,000 attendees and includes over 300 exhibits, Power Racing, Combat Robots, Nerdy Derby, and much more on display throughout three air-conditioned exhibit halls, as well as green spaces filled with hands-on activities, workshops and competitions.
Make t-shirts and buttons, learn to solder, watch robot battles and drone racing, and so much more throughout this weekend. Maker Faire is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.
Robot Ruckus is back for 2021 and is included with Maker Faire Orlando tickets. See your favorite robot builders from TV having fun destroying each other’s toys with more than 20 teams from the BattleBots show on the Discovery Channel and Discovery+.
