The Henry Ford is reactivating our campus and programs but due to the highly interactive, participant driven nature of Maker Faire and our on-going safety focus, we will keep Maker Faire® Detroit on pause for 2021. 


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 continually seek new ways to integrate makers into our programs.

We believe in the power of creatives, makers, inventors and entrepreneurs to tackle today’s problems and create a better future. Thank you to all the Makers who have stepped forward to create PPE and other necessary innovations during this on-going pandemic, we thank you!  #WeAreInnovationNation
