2020 Make It Dayton Festival – CANCELLED

We hope you will join us next year on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at Carillon Historical Park.
Unfortunately, like many other events in the Dayton area, the 2020 Make It Dayton Festival has been cancelled due to COVID-19.  We hope to see you all once again in 2021!  Please stay tuned to our social media and website for updates as we begin planning for next year.

The Make It Dayton Festival is Dayton’s own gathering of Makers. We showcase the local artists, woodworkers, and 3D-printers alongside makers, inventors and craftsmen of all kinds, from professional to hobbyist. If you have a passion for arts, hobbies, and do-it-yourself projects, then you will find that you will love the Make It Dayton Festival. We encourage families and people of all ages to attend. And if you have that maker spirit, we would love for you to sign up and show off your talents.

Date and Time

The Make It Dayton Festival will be on Saturday, October 2, 2021 – the anniversary of the first practical flight – at beautiful Carillon Historical Park in Dayton.

We love exhibitors who have a passion for making! Please come and share with us your craft and how you do it. We especially love people who share their craft through hands-on activities.
