The Long Island Explorium is thrilled to host our 6th Annual Maker Faire Long Island on June 3, 2023, in the picturesque Village of Port Jefferson.

As part of the global Maker Faire brand, this event celebrates creativity and innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

100+ makers and 2000+ participants of all ages will have the opportunity to experience innovative robotics, interactive art, and more through hands-on exhibits and performances at the Long Island Explorium, Village Center, and Harborfront Park.

By merging the classic science fair with elements of innovation, creativity, and engineering, Maker Faire has become a unique event and a showcase of makers' ingenuity, referred to as the "Greatest Show & Tell on Earth." Since 2015, Maker Faire Long Island has been attracting over 100 makers and 2000 visitors each year from the New York Tri-State area and beyond.
