This year we will feature robot scrimmages, quadcopter races, and a mini golf course – all designed, built, and programmed by Chicago youth! We expect to showcase new products that have grown from maker hobbies to maker businesses. Of course, there will also be a wide assortment of projects from individual makers, formal organizations, and informal groups.Plan now to come out to share your maker project, enjoy other projects, watch robotics demonstrations, or learn how maker skills can jumpstart a business or career. This multi-generational event is sure to offer something for everyone.

To get your mind ready, take part in the National Week of Making celebrations and find a new project to make!

  1. I’m with the ChiBots robotics group. We have attended the Southside Maker Faire in the past. Thanks for the info on the Mini Maker Faire for Aug 5, 2017; however, you did not mention the venue. In fact, we thought that this faire was not going to be held this year.

  2. OH NO! We are still here and hope you’ll join us again as a maker. We have always enjoyed your presence (and its still not too late to register to attend)

    We have a NEW VENUE this year WITH GRASS! We are being hosted by Richard J Daley College at 7500 S Pulaski (a short walk due east of previous faires). All details about this indoor/outdoor event can be found on our NEW website: ChicagoSouthside.makerfaire.com.
