What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects.

The Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum is thrilled to be a sponsor of this year’s event.  We hope you will join us for a day of innovation at Poughkeepsie Day School, 260 Boardman Road, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603.

* Please note this event is NOT at the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum!
