Makers Organize New Fest for Milwaukee

Milwaukee, WI - Members of local maker collective Milwaukee Makerspace announce a new festival called Milwaukee MakerFest to take place on October 19 at in Bay View. Described as a giant “show and tell”, this event will bring the general public together people who make things and explore the curiosity and creativity that drives them.   


MakerFest will offer visitors the chance to explore all aspects of making through interactive exhibits, hands on workshops, and demonstrations including :  metalworking, woodworking, fashion design / sewing, laser cutting, casting, 3d printing, robotics, programming, and mechanical / electrical engineering.  Projects range from entrepreneurial to the whimsical and everything in between.


MakerFest is using the crowdfunding site Kickstarter.com to give people the opportunity to pre-purchase tickets and participate in exclusive workshops with members of the Milwaukee Makerspace.  Our Kickstarter campaign can be found at www.milwaukeemakerfest.com/kickstarter
