Due to the Coronavirus outbreak in the UK, we cancelled our May 2020 event. We will be running the next York MakerFest in 2021, and the organisers are already looking into how we can make our event as safe as possible. Keep safe and we can't wait to welcome attendees and volunteers in 2021.

YMF x SLH Face Covering.

Available now, from yorkpijam.shop

We’ve partnered with our Charity of the Year to help raise funds through our YMF charity face covering. Not only does it help reduce the spread of Coronavirus, 100% of the profits go to St Leonard’s Hospice! Now that’s what we call a feel good face covering!

Merry Makemas!

At York MakerFest, we love Christmas! We’ve gone festive a little earlier than usual, all thanks to the launch of XmasMix from York Mix Radio! We want you all to share your Christmas making projects on Twitter or Instagram, by tagging us in them @YorkMakerFest and by using the hashtag #MerryMakemas.

We can’t wait to see what you get up to, and we hope to be able to see you all in 2021!

Remember to keep safe and follow all Government guidance.

A message to Volunteers.

It’s all very strange at the moment. But one thing we are so grateful for, is our amazing team of volunteers. We’re here to support you during lockdown. From mental health support to food vouchers, our Volunteering team are only a message away. We have also kept our volunteer messaging app open so we can all keep in touch.

We hope to be able to get back to normal in December and then have our event in 2021.

If you’re looking at becoming a volunteer, please hang on. We have only temporarily suspended our applications, and we hope to be recruiting again in January.

Our charity of the year for 2020 & 2021 is...

St Leonard's Hospice 35 Anniversary brand

We hope to see you join us in raising cash for this amazing local charity!

Keep safe and keep a 2m distance between yourself and others.
