Save the Date for Make-End, Macon's Inaugural Maker Festival!
Experience Central Georgia's first maker festival, November 14-15 in Macon, Georgia. Designed to be similar to the World's Fair, maker festivals showcase the latest innovations of today and tomorrow. These events bring together makers, who are people that create original works and range from engineers to artists, to connect them with one another and the community. The festival is supplemented with large-scale attractions, speakers and food vendors.
Thanks to a generous grant from ArtPlace America, the College Hill Alliance is organizing Make-End, Macon's debut maker festival, this fall. Check for updates on the website Make-End.com as its developed, and we issue a call for makers to participate as well as release our schedule of events for this exciting, all-ages event.
