What is Maker Faire?

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!

About Our Maker Faire

Maker Faire is back and bigger than ever in Cranberry Township.  The mini is gone, and Cranberry Township Maker Faire is roaring back April 18th from 9-3!  This year the Faire serves as the kickoff of the Grand Opening of the Forge.  We can’t wait for you to see the new home of making in Cranberry Township – the Forge, at the Cranberry Library!  The mission of the Cranberry Public Library is to strengthen our community by serving as an integral hub for information, inspiration, and enrichment.  Stop in early and see the Grand Opening and ribbon cutting, and visit with all of our makers onsite to jumpstart your mind into the next thing we can help you create!  We hope you enjoy the second of many Maker Faires in Cranberry Township.  Our team  looks forward to seeing you there! Tickets are free and able to be reserved now!


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.  Read more on Maker Faire history, the Maker Movement, as well as how to start a Maker Faire or a School Maker Faire where you live.
