Maker Faire: Kansas City makes return to Union Station June 23-24
Maker Faire: Kansas City is returning to Union Station on June 23 and 24. The weekend event, now in its second year at Union Station, aims to bring together makers of all kinds to celebrate and showcase their creations.
This year, the event is one of the headliners on a list of more than 30 functions scheduled as for One Week KC, a nine-day series of events designed to inspire, educate and connect Kansas City entrepreneurs. (For more on One Week KC, see our story from Monday.)
Maker Faire: Kansas City celebrates things people create themselves — from new technology and electronic gizmos to urban farming and “slow-made” foods to homemade clothes, quilts and sculptures. This family-friendly event demonstrates what and how people are inventing, making and creating. It brings together Makers, Crafters, Inventors, Hackers, Scientists and Artists for a faire full of fun and inspiration. Come see what others are making and be inspired to tap into your own creativity!
A variety of early-bird ticket options are available for purchase online, starting with day passes that cost $10 for adults and $7 for seniors and children. Ticket prices increase on June 22.
