Columbus Day Weekend 2019 – October 11-14

Maker Fairs are celebrations of the amazing possibilities of things you can build, dream, and make. Now we bring the Catskills a festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness for families, and a celebration of the Maker movement – including legendary maker Jimmy DiResta!

Maker events are a combination of science, ingenuity, and the creative spirit, the Catskill Mountain Makers Camp is a gathering of artisans, educators, do-it-yourselfers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, writers, artists, students and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” are invited to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

The Catskill Mountain Makers Camp is a gathering of curious, fascinating people who like to learn and who like to share what they can do. It is a place where creators can show off, where we can learn and share techniques, where we can find marvelous and amazing things! Do-It-Yourself is often invisible in our communities, whether in shops, garages or on kitchen tables. It is usually away from traditional artistic, scientific or craft events. Maker events brings us into touch with ideas that are extraordinary and out of the everyday!
