There are maker fairs, festivals and days year round and planetwide. What makes JSMF different is that we are entirely experiential and non-profit. This event isn’t about selling or showing, but doing. Makerfest IS the people who come to converse, share, demonstrate and participate, so every year will be unique. Hackers, builders, engineers and tinkerers cavort with cooks, crafters, artists, and authors. Grandpas, grandmas, and grandkids fuse one generation’s wisdom with another’s energy. The fest is the interface of technology with nature, art with science, ideas with materials, and software with the mind. It is for those willing to learn, inspired to dream, and hungry for fun. Our partners and supporters include school districts, colleges, community organizations, museums, tech companies, local artists, the NJDOE’s Office of Educational Technology and the NJ School Boards Association. By participating, you make Makerfest an event you’d want to attend!
