NH Maker & Food Fest

June 29, 2019 / 10 am - 4 pm

PLEASE NOTE: The Children's Museum's normal exhibits will be CLOSED today. This Fest is a special event that takes place inside the museum and throughout downtown Dover. If you purchase tickets to the Fest, that does not mean your family will then be able to play inside the museum. The entire museum, including exhibit spaces, is occupied with Makers for the duration of the Fest.

What is it?

The NH Maker & Food Fest (Formerly the Dover Mini Maker Faire) is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists, to chefs, the Maker & Food Fest is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects, and for all of us to enjoy fantastic food!

We call it the Greatest Show & Tell (& Taste) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Bring your appetites, glimpse the future and get inspired!

I loved the diversity in the exhibits and the ability for my son to create things and bring them home. He absolutely loved the robots (that's something you don't see everyday) and being able to use his hands to make something grown-ups make.

What makes this day so unique?
