Maker Extravaganza celebration kicks off month-long celebration of makers

On July 8 and July 9, Toronto’s makers, technologists, and craftspeople will gather at the Maker Extravangaza, the hallmark event that kicks off a month-long festival that celebrates creativity and tech.

Taking place at the Toronto Reference Library, the Maker Extravaganza will give over a hundred creative minds the opportunity to showcase their projects and ideas to attendees. Exhibitors will showcase projects such as 3D printing, wearables, robotics, and others.

Attendees will also be able to attend free drop-in workshops, as well as registered workshops that cover activities such as 3D printing, paper marking, and a bubble barf workshop.

The Maker Extravaganza is the hallmark event that wraps up the Maker Festival, a month-long festival over 100 events run by maker spaces, creative organizations and studios across Toronto.
