Heartland Maker Fest 2016 is here!

Join us on Saturday, Oct. 1, 9am-2pm at Urbana’s Lincoln Square Mall for a day of making!

Makerspace Urbana is excited to host our annual event, the Heartland Maker Fest, celebrating the amazing makers in Urbana-Champaign and the surrounding communities. We wish to:

  • Inspire By searching for creative and unique makers to exhibit at the festival, we hope attendees are inspired by the creative projects of others.
  • Empower By focusing on hands-on experiences, we hope people feel empowered to make their own projects a reality.
  • Connect By creating a free and open public festival, we hope to connect attendees to the local resources they need to help make their ideas come to life.

We’re enthusiastic to share the work of over 25 new and returning crafters, artists, tinkerers, engineers, inventors, and performers! Keep up-to-date as we announce new participating makers at our “Meet the Makers” page.

Thanks to our sponsors, especially the Urbana Public Arts Program, the event is free and open to all.
