Tinkerfest is back this Fall!

Get ready to put your "tinkering" cap on, because the Amazeum's festival of tinkering and making is coming back this fall!
Save the date for Saturday, September 23, 2023.

So, what is "Tinkerfest"?

This one-day event brings together tinkerers, makers, artists, DIYers, and creatives from diverse backgrounds for activities that celebrate the curious, creative, and innovative spirit in everyone.

Tinkerfest features hands-on activities to promote tinkering and making created by local tinkerers, the Amazeum team, and regional and national museums and science centers.

The first Amazeum Tinkerfest, held at Old High Middle School in Bentonville prior to the opening of the museum, introduced making and tinkering to the community. Now the event is the largest convening of makers in Arkansas, and Tinkerfests are held at museums across the country! This event brings together craftspeople, educators, artists, engineers, scientists, and technologists from diverse backgrounds to interact with families, promote creativity and curiosity and support a community of makers.

Whether an avid tinkerer or beginner, Tinkerfest is a great event for families to play, connect, create, and make.
