The Henry Ford is resetting our 2020 program plans and making operational changes in response to the COVID-19 virus outbreak. As part of this reset, we will not host Maker Faire® Detroit on July 25-26, 2020.


We recognize and celebrate the work that Maker Faire® Detroit’s sponsors and makers are doing to positively respond to needs in our communities. Our commitment to innovation learning and the maker community remains steadfast. We are seeking new ways to integrate makers into our programs when we reopen.


We believe in the power of creatives, makers, inventors and entrepreneurs to tackle today’s problems and create a better future. #WeAreInnovationNation

Join us for online programming to share the maker spirit and creativity, and ignite problem-solving for the next generation of learners during this difficult time.

We hope you and your loved ones are remaining healthy and well!
