What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a festival full of workshops, interactive activities and above all enthusiastic and curious people. Almost everything can be experienced first-hand and much can be made. Makers present their projects and prototypes.

The festival brings together enthusiasts and experts, but also promises smart entertainment for the whole family – combining modern technology, traditional crafts, science and design.

Second year in the making

The first year of this festival in Southern Bohemia took place in the awesome Žižkárna – the area of former barracks next to OC Mercury (entrance from Žižkova třída). The program took place both indoors and outdoors.

In September 2022, there is going to be another weekend show of 30 makers and their projects. You will again be able to participate in numerous workshops and installations.

⏰ 10 – 11 September at Žižkarna

At the second edition of the Budweis Maker Faire you can expect projects from local makers and those from all over the country! What would you say to a robotics workshop or building water rockets?

Saturday 10:00 -18:00 and Sunday 10:00 -16:00
