Midwest MakerFest

Are you interested in DIY? What about Technology? 3D Printing? Drones? What about Art? Well if you said yes to any of those, welcome to the Midwest MakerFest hosted by River City Labs!

Midwest MakerFest is Peoria’s chance to celebrate the art of making, tinkering, and inventing. Presented by RiverCityLabs, a 501(c)(3) organization, Midwest MakerFest will be at the Peoria Civic Center in conjunction with Ignite Peoria. Midwest Makerfest represents the largest maker event the Central Illinois—in our first year we had over 30 maker groups and 7000 attendees! Come celebrate making in Peoria!

Midwest MakerFest is a venue for makers, artists, and technologists to show off their projects. Being a part of the maker community is an important way to ensure that we continue to grow and impact the world around us. Participating in Midwest MakerFest is a good way to meet like-minded people, participate in education, and learn a little along the way. The best part—it’s free to become an exhibitor!

Keep your eyes open for next year opportunity to become a exhibitor and sponsor.

Thank you to this year’s wonderful Midwest MakerFest sponsors
