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.

Roll on 2021.

York MakerFest will return...

We cannot wait to return in 2021! Our 2020 event did get cancelled due to the rising number of Coronavirus cases in the UK, and… fingers crossed… we will be back up and running in 2021.

Until then, keep safe!

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!
