March 16, 2017 - With a heavy heart, we regret to inform you that Maker Faire Chicago has been postponed due to complications with the venue. We are in the process of finding a new date and location in late fall. We are disappointed. We know that the makers are disappointed too.

The excitement and enthusiasm from the Maker Community for Maker Faire Chicago is real, as is the support of local institutions. We remain committed to Maker Faire Chicago and are looking forward to announcing a new date and venue. ~ Thank you for your support.

Are you ready for #BUSTcraftacular? BUST is taking our award-winning, indie craft fair on the road to the Windy City, teaming up with Maker Faire and the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo to bring you the ultimate weekend of techy, nerdy, crafty and girly fun.   The BUST Craftacular Pavilion will put the 'A' in S.T.E.A.M (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics), featuring makers selling shoppable, wearable, edible, and playable crafts that represent a fusion of classic and new technologies. We had laser cut jewelry, beauty products mixed by chemists, custom toys fresh off the 3D printer and so much more.
