Maker Faire Ottawa
Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.
For one spectacular weekend, Aberdeen Pavilion in Ottawa’s historic fairgrounds will be transformed into a model Maker City, a showcase of human ingenuity and imagination to entertain, inform and inspire. This first global Maker Faire Ottawa will take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers around the world. It will be a prototype for a community of tomorrow, always unfinished, always introducing, and testing, and demonstrating new materials and new systems.
With several important sports events happening at Landsdowne the same weekend, there is no on-site parking for festivalgoers available. Off-site parking is available at Carleton University (parking lot 7 and garage P18). Connecting transit service between Carleton University and Landsdowne is provided on OC Transpo Route 7.
Your event ticket includes free service on any OC Transpo. Show your printed paper ticket to the operator. Event tickets are valid to ride on transit starting 3 hours before the event, until 3 hours after the event. Don’t forget to keep your ticket for the ride home!
