2019 Evening Capitol Hill Maker Faire

  • Rayburn HOB Cafeteria (map)

The Nation Celebrates the Maker Movement!

The 4th annual Capitol Hill Maker Faire on June 24, 2019 celebrates the American Maker movement as a part of the National Week of Making, June 21-27, 2019. It will be a fun and interactive event for members of the public, members of Congress, and staff.

Hosted by the Nation of Makers along with the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and in collaboration with the Congressional Maker Caucus, the event explores the movement driven by engineers, hobbyists, tinkerers, crafters, artists, entrepreneurs and innovators that is revolutionizing education through inquiry-based learning, is breathing new life and innovation into American manufacturing, and is strengthening American communities and their economy.

Join us for the Capitol Hill Maker Faire! Staffers, families, visitors — the event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome!

Preceding the Faire, there will be a series of panel discussions with leaders and practitioners of the Maker movement discussing its impact on the economy, education, and community development.
