Maker Faire Rome: Family-Friendly Fun for All {#MakerFaireRome}

October 1, 2018

How many times in life have you had the chance to surround yourself with other innovative DIY innovators and makers? You and your family may have always been more on the creative side, but when it comes to being able to interact and engage with others and see what options and creativity are out there, you all may have felt a few limitations in the past. If that’s the case, Maker Faire Rome is exactly what you’ve been waiting for.

For 3 days only (October 12-14), you and your family will be able to mingle at Europe’s greatest innovation event where hundreds of great ideas are just waiting to be discovered. If you’ve ever to find a place brimming with inspiration, Maker Faire Rome has that and so much more!

The great part about this event is that it started recently, back in 2013 and has since become a worldwide phenomenon. Plus, any and all ages are welcome to participate and showcase their thoughts and ideas as well.

What can you expect to find at Maker Faire Rome? 

Besides amazing ideas and some pretty cool people, most of the exhibits are open to the public to come and test out. How awesome is it that you and your family can discover some of the newest ideas out there, and experience them together! That’s family bonding at it’s best. 

In addition to amazing memories, you can also expect to find:

  • An amazing education area for children – STEM-focused and hands-on, your child will love being able to be their own innovator for the day!
  • An amazing diversity of projects – Remember, Maker Faire Rome is now international! This means that there will be people visiting from all over the world to show off their latest and greatest idea! Having that many great minds under one roof is truly mind-blowing. Talk about a ton of energy! (In 2017, Maker Faire Rome had a crowd of over 100,000!)
  • Themed ideas and projects that can’t be missed – From robots to educational games, you are going to see and have the opportunity to view it all. Plus…you can get some really cool Christmas shopping ideas from this event as well. Who wouldn’t love the latest and greatest innovation in their stocking this year?
  • Inspiration at every booth – Again, an opportunity like this doesn’t present itself very often. Taking advantage of having makers from all over the world, together under one roof, promoting the latest and greatest innovation isn’t something to take lightly. Ideas will be flowing, networking will be happening!\

While you may not be able to attend this year as an innovator, you can absolutely attend as a spectator and curious guest. And honestly, there aren’t many conventions out there that are quite as great as this one. The truth? Booking your ticket in advance is necessary because this does and will sell out quickly. With crowds expecting to exceed what they did last year (remember…100,000!), buying your tickets now is an absolute must! 

There are several ticket options: family ticket, 3-day pass, student ticket, group ticket. The Faire is, overall, very affordable also in terms of food & services.

Hurry and join in on meeting and interacting with some of the greatest innovators and makers there are by purchasing your tickets here

    I haven’t heard of this before, but it sounds like a great place to visit, especially for any budding inventors

    I’ve not heard of this before but we’re big fans of STEM oun this household. Anything that’s hands on and teaches Luke (and sometimes me) about the world is well worth checking out in my books.

    Wow! This sounds like such a wonderful and inspiring event to take the children to. I love the idea that STEM activities are a focus too. Will hve to look into all the options. Thanks for sharing.
