Gulf Coast MakerCon is our annual celebration of local manufacturing, industry and innovation. It’s 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.
As an independent maker festival, we can talk about and showcase all kinds of products by all kinds of companies, small businesses and individuals, honestly assess things on their own merits, and freely celebrate in the truest DIY spirit of independent, self-reliant, unfettered creativity and fun!
