Maker Faire Barcelona

Description / Objectives

Showcase for maker innovation and creativity open to everyone.

The Maker Faire is the major event of the year (and an international brand) for invention and digital creation that brings together hundreds of engineers, artists, designers, hackers, artisans, makers, "fabricaires", programmers and scientists, who experiment, collaborate and innovate based on code and open machinery, in order to present their most advanced projects within the framework of Society 4.0. The first Maker Faire was born in San Francisco in 2006. 12 years later, the 225 fairs organised around the world, with over 1,600,000 participants and a worldwide network with thousands of maker centres and initiatives, all reveal the initiative's social, economic and environmental scope and impact. 

Maker Faire Barcelona is the local version of the event, which has taken place in our city for several years now, with attendance rising from 1,000 people to 10,000 in just five years. In 2017 and 2018, the years which saw the biggest number of attendees and greatest impact, the Maker Faire took place in the Pavelló Italià hall at the Fira de Barcelona, Barcelona Trade Fair.

The 2019 Maker Faire Barcelona will take place in the Nau Bostik, an emblematic citizen center in the neighborhood of La Sagrera (Sant Andreu).

It is a Sonar+D initiative with FabLab Barcelona and SokoTech, co-organised by Make Magazine with the support of Barcelona City Council (through the Commissioner for Digital Technology and Innovation).
