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!

Is there a better community for a Maker Faire than Northwest Arkansas? The folks here at the Fayetteville Public Library certainly think not. With our robust community of artists, makers, performers, and tinkerers Maker Faire NWA is a huge event from 2022 to beyond. Through Maker Faire NWA, we are aiming to bring together the best that our region has to offer for a weekend of sharing, showcasing, and fun for all ages. Not sure where to begin making? Come by and visit the newly expanded library and our state-of-the-art JB and Johnelle Hunt Family Center for Innovation; complete with a fabrication and robotics lab, audio & video recording studios, and so much more!
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.
