Makevention is a celebration of the do-it-yourself spirit with loads of local and regional makers sharing their love for making. Makevention 2014 will be held from 10am to 4pm on August 30, 2014 at the Convention Center in Bloomington, Indiana. Our deadline for exhibitor applications is July 30th, so we are currently taking exhibitor applications for this year’s event. Sign up early as there is a limited amount of space. Go to our Call for Makers page to reserve your space today.

Makevention is all about makers including tech enthusiasts, artists, educators, crafters, hobbyists, and tinkerers all who have a love of making. Check out our video which gives you a taste of the making community in Bloomington.

Last year we upcycled t-shirts with Discardia and the IU Creativity Lab, made vacuum formed molds and shot twinkies with Bloominglabs, watched frisbee throwing FIRST robots and bowling FIRST LEGO League robots, battled with the Bloomington Battle Games, knitted and crocheted with the Bloomington B’s and Blue Door Red Gate, raced pinewood derby cars with the Boys Scouts of America, talked HAM radios with Bloomington’s Amateur Radio clubs, and much much more.

If you would like to sponsor this exciting, fun, community-oriented event, please check out our Sponsors page. With your donation you can see your name on all our websites and publications, support hands-on activities and learning, and help build the maker community in Bloomington and the surrounding area.

See you at Makevention 2014!
