Tinkerfest A


Tinkerfest, a one-day festival that celebrates the creative, curious, and innovative spirit in all of us, returns to Northwest Arkansas on Saturday, October 6, 2018 from 9 am until 4 pm. The 2018 event will be held at the Scott Family Amazeum and is included with your paid admission or your membership.

Each year, the Amazeum brings together makers, artists, tinkerers, craftspeople, educators, and creatives to showcase their work while inviting families to join in the DIY (do it yourself) fun and learn from each other. Whether a beginner or an avid tinkerer, Tinkerfest is a great family activity where all can experiment and learn things together. Ages 4-104 will find a tinkering experience to explore.

Returning to Tinkerfest this year is the popular car take apart activity. Other activity stations include 3D printing, technology dissection and upcycling, and interactive activities created by students at regional schools.

Thanks to all the makers, tinkerers, volunteers, teachers, students, and parents who collaborate to make this event AMAZING.
