Maker Couture Fashion Show

Maker Faire showcases the amazing work of all kinds and ages of Makers–anyone who is embracing the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share it with an appreciative audience!

This year, we are putting on a Maker movement inspired fashion show presenting what we call “Maker Couture” on **SATURDAY JUNE 24 (TIME TBD)**. Calling all hobbyists, enthusiasts, or students (amateurs!) of the Maker fashion movement, this is your chance to showcase your innovative designs to a group of like-minded, enthusiastic people.

Strawberry Swing Pop-Up

We’re partnering with the Strawberry Swing, an indie craft fair full of creatives who are experts at their craft, to have a SWING POP-UP at Maker Faire KC.

Recently recognized as one of the Top 35 Craft Fairs in the World by Buzzfeed, it is the Midwest’s celebration of the handmade movement and a perfect partnership for Maker Faire Kansas City as we continue to highlight our community of Makers.

All Craft Makers will apply for Maker Faire Kansas City through the Strawberry Swing. This new Pop-Up Strawberry Swing area will bring all Craft Makers together for a fun, handmade experience.

KCPT kidszone

Partnering with KCPT, we are happy to bring you the KCPT kidszone! Located in Union Station’s Haverty Family Yards, the kidszone will have multiple Maker stations such as Splash & Bubbles, Measuring Activities, KCPT Kids TV and more. Appearances from favorite KCPT characters and stage performances from local family-friendly favorites should be expected!

Lowriders Car Show and Competition

Realistic Impressions returns to host the Lowrider Car Show and Competition at Maker Faire KC.
