As the the first major Maker Faire in NRW the Maker Faire Ruhr introduces visitors of all generations to the world of tomorrow!

The Maker Faire is a family-friendly festival for inventors, that focuses on diy, building, inventing, experimenting, leanring, recycling and inspring, but most of all having fun. The event features makers of all kind and provides them with an ideal platform to present their projects to a broad public. For many maker the visitors’ interest and enthusiasm is the real reward for their hard work.
