This free and family friendly event, held at the Wond’ry, Vanderbilt’s Center for Innovation, will showcase novices and experts of all ages, with one major thing in common: a joy for making and creation. Previously known as the Nashville Mini Maker Faire, this beloved event has attracted over 4,000 curious visitors to its doors.

From tech enthusiasts to embroiderers to scientists to crafters and everything in between, this event will feature an incredible gathering of “makers” who will show off their hobbies, projects, experiments, and creations. We cannot wait to display their amazing talents and gifts to the Tennessee Community. This event will feature over 75 exhibitors, and will include robotics, authors, fashionistas, science club members, artists, hobbyists, and commercial groups. There will be some familiar faces from our local community, as we will be joined by the Adventure Science Center, Studio NPL (Nashville Public Library), Lipscomb Academy Students, East Nashville Transmitters, Green Hills YMCA, Frist Center for Autism and Innovation, and MTRAS - Middle TN Robotics, among others. You may even get to see some of your favorite Star Wars characters roaming around!
Visitors will enjoy a number of hands-on making opportunities themselves, with many exhibitors allowing a glimpse into their crafts and inventions. Want to capture the moment with the family? Shatterproof Media will be offering complimentary photos with their next level photographic entertainment services. This event will also feature flavors from some of Tennessee’s favorite local food trucks, and there will be free parking available in the 25th Avenue Garage.
