What time is it? It’s #MakerFaireDetroit time!

Maker Faire Detroit

On July 27-28 (this weekend!), more than 400 tinkers, hackers and inventors will make their way to The Henry Ford for the fourth annual Maker Faire Detroit. 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.”

I’m so excited, because this year the hubs, the kid and I are going. I’ve wanted to go for a while, but haven’t had the opportunity until now.

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. For more information, visit the Maker Faire Detroit website and like it on Facebook.

    Hi! I’m another Michigan based blogger and just found your blog :)

    I’m really bummed I missed this! Was in Chicago this weekend but I totally would’ve have loved going to this faire. Hope you’ll do a review of your trip there – I can only imagine how inspired I would feel after seeing all the exhibits!

      Hi Alicia, and welcome! Always glad to meet new bloggers (especially my fellow Michiganders).

      Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend. I fell ill this past Friday and am still feeling it. Sigh… maybe next year.
