The Calgary Maker Faire took place at East Village’s River Walk on Sept 8, 2012. It showcased the work, craft and artistry of local crafters,
makers, hackers, tinkerers, artists, authors, roboticists, hobbyists, science clubs and DIY enthusiasts. The faire’s mission was to entertain,
inform, connect, and inspire thousands of current and future makers in Calgary.
