An Important Message About Our 2019 Event


Dear friends, patrons, and community members of Maker Faire Ottawa;

We are sad to have to announce that the 2019 edition of Maker Faire Ottawa is postponed indefinitely. We were looking forward to producing Maker Faire Ottawa throughout Arts Court and the Ottawa Art Gallery this year, celebrating the works our makers had to display.

Several elements conspired towards this difficult decision, including the sudden collapse of Make Media in early June. As independent producers, we have been working to deliver a local Maker Faire this August despite all this, but the combined challenges have made it almost impossible to deliver a quality Faire that would do justice to our legacy of the past 10 years.

Maker Faire Ottawa highlights the creative spirit, powerful entrepreneurial energy and incredible curiosity of the city and its people. We continue to be committed to showcasing and championing the creative community of the region.

We want to take a moment to share our many thanks to all the makers and audiences for your dedicated support of Maker Faire Ottawa since 2010. While we regret that this year’s event is not going forward as planned, we will continue to connect communities around our shared passion for making. The maker movement has had an incredible impact on the world, and we look forward to playing a part in the future evolution of that movement with new formats and platforms for sharing and connecting.
