What do can openers, colored television, portable typewriters, vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, the first primitive submarine, and frisbees all have in common? They were invented right here in Connecticut. The good news is that Connecticut ingenuity is alive and well in our state, only too many people don’t know about it.

Maker Faires are a family-friendly event that promotes this spirit of invention and creativity—a coming together of inventiveness and artistic expression that translates into the inventions of the future or in some cases, the here and now. Through interactive workshops, demonstrations, and exhibits, it’s hoped that the young and the old become inspired to create a better world through invention. It’s a place where people show what they are making and share what they are learning. It’s for people of all ages who create, make, build, innovate, tinker, hack, engineer, or design.
