What Everybody Ought to Know About Make-End: Macon’s Maker Festival


Make-end is an art and technology festival sponsored by College Hill Alliance showcasing the talents of artists, clothing makers, computer programmers, costume designers, crafters, DIYers, engineers, entrepreneurs, furniture designers, gadget makers, game designers, graphic designers, metalworkers, robot creators, scientists, technologists, and woodworkers.

Middle Georgia Makers across the region will be exhibiting their products, services, and crafts on November 14th to 15th at Tattnall Square Park in Macon, GA.   The festival seeks to inspire the next generation of creative tech professionals, creative artists and showcase the economic strengths of the region.

My wife Sarah and I had the opportunity to take the family to our first maker festival in 2013. It was amazing.   The kids loved shooting smoke rings into the air, shooting off paper rockets, building crafts at the STEAM truck, making glop, and seeing toys created by 3D printers. On Georgia Tech’s beautiful campus, you could notice quadcopters and R/C aircraft dancing in the sky. The boys LOVED all the robots. They especially enjoyed catching Frisbee’s from the robots built by the FIRST robotics teams in Georgia. I was very impressed with the young people and mentors in the festival.  I think the festival inspired many future engineers!

I know that many of our readers care about growing the next generation of creatives like I do.   Hope to see you there with your friends and family.   It’s going to be a great time!
