Welcome to the homepage for Gulf Coast MakerCon, Tampa Bay’s independent, oldest and largest maker festival!
Our 2020 event is set for May 23 & 24 at University Mall in Tampa, home to AMRoC Fab Lab and the epicenter of a maker project of epic proportions, as the Uptown Tampa area is transformed into a mixed use city center, making it the perfect home for Gulf Coast MakerCon, a celebration of the DIY innovative spirit!
Thanks to event partners University Mall, RD Management and the Foundation for Community Driven Innovation, the event will be free and open to the public! Look for exhibitor registration information soon.
Gulf Coast MakerCon is an opportunity for everyone to join together to share resources, learn a craft, hone their skills, find career and academic opportunities, try new tools and innovations, and much more.
Between events, we invite you to use these pages and our related social media to connect with other makers, share your events and programs, and learn about different creative opportunities and resources.
Together we can Make the Florida Gulf Coast Amazing, Personally Fulfilling and Economically Productive!
