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 considering different situations to make our event as safe as possible. Keep safe and we can't wait to welcome attendees and volunteers in 2021.

Welcome back to York.

Visit York. Be safe. Support local businesses.

As going abroad seems to be harder and harder to achieve, staycations seem to be the new cool. Come and visit York, sight see everything we have to offer, visit everything Harry Potter on The Shambles and have retail therapy on the best shopping streets such as Coney Street. Whatever you do though, keep safe, social distance and wear a mask if possible.

Interested in volunteering?

We still need volunteers to help York MakerFest run as smoothly as possible by helping attendees. We have front of house, parking assistance and charity stall roles available. Interested in helping but don’t have making experience, don’t worry! Plus, there is a reference and free food involved. Register your interest now!
