The NH Maker Fest is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists, to chefs, the NH Maker Fest is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects, and for all of us to discover something new. Oh and there is fantastic food to enjoy here too!

Fest visitors can spend the day discovering new things from the Makers either through hands-on activities, workshops, presentations, or performances.

We call it the Greatest Show & Tell on Earth:  a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

The Children’s Museum of New Hampshire wishes to actively engage families in hands-on discovery! We want to inspire the next generation of innovators and creative thinkers. So why not gather together local innovators and creatives to show off what they can do and inspire us all?!

Participating Makers might be:

  • Makers who have built robots
  • Tinkerers who have invented something new
  • Authors sharing a love of literacy
  • Artists who have crafted unique objects
  • Homesteaders and engineers who can build anything
  • Coffee brewers serving it up hot or cold
  • Entertainers with music in their souls
  • Educators and community leaders who want to share opportunities
  • Bakers selling delicious in every color
  • Kids with big dreams
  • Technology geeks sharing a love of new innovations
