Maker Faire Detroit is a two-day festival that feature a lot of great stuff for the whole family, including baseball pitching robots, flame shooters, animatronics, mega-sized board games, remote controlled hot air balloons and handmade crafts.
From the Maker Faire website:
“Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.”
Ticket prices for Maker Faire Detroit are $28 for adults (13-61), $19.00 for youth (5-12) and $26 for seniors (62+). Children 4 and under are free. Shuttle service to Maker Faire is sponsored by the University of Michigan-Dearborn and is available at the Fairlane campus located 19000 Hubbard Dr in Dearborn.
