“Every Little Innovation And Creation Counts!”

Maker Fest

Maker Fest is the Indian continuation of Maker Faire. Launched in California in 2006, over 200 Maker Faires are now hosted around the world with hundreds of thousands of people attending. It is a showcase of invention and creativity that provides a platform to tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, food artisans, hobbyists, engineers, artists, students and commercial exhibitors. Makers come to show their creations. Future in making is witnessed during the fest days.

Maker Fest Vadodara is an opportunity for all makers in and around Vadodara whereby they can share their stories, journey, and inventions with people and potential investors. Diversity is always given a preference during the fest and hence in the past 2 years – the event has seen participation from varied backgrounds such as technology, agriculture, environment, applied sciences, food technology, rural artisans, education, arts, health, renewable energy, etc.

Maker Fest also provides a networking opportunity with a like-minded maker community, an access to mentors who can guide on the way forward and also help validate the ideas.

About Maker Fest Vadodara 2021

With a short history of 2 years, Maker Fest Vadodara has become a household name and has touched cumulatively 17000 people and with each passing year – We wish to bring the best talent to the forefront and provide a unique opportunity to grow. 
2020-21 has been an unusual year as all the normalcy has been questioned by the pandemic. But the situation has not deterred our determination to continue our effort of finding makers and giving a right opportunity to them from across the Country. Hence, Maker Fest Vadodara 2021 is being organized online on 6th and 7th March with an aim of hosting 50+ makers from various fields like technology, Environment, Health, Education, Art, Automation and creations addressing solutions to Corona. The virtual platform will be as good as being able to present the ideas real time and most importantly will have a scope of reaching out to masses across the Country.
