What is CreatedBy e-Festival?

CreatedBy e-Festival 2020 (formerly the Boston Mini Maker Faire), produced by Boston Children’s Museum, is an annual showcase and festival of ingenuity, imagination, and cross-disciplinary creativity. CreatedBy brings together artists, engineers, inventors, fabricators, and local makers for an all-ages event featuring exhibitor showcases, hands-on workshops, demonstrations, talks, performances, food, and more!

This year, the Museum is proud to partner with MA STEM Week, a statewide initiative to engage students in hands-on science, technology, engineering, and math activities. Additional CreatedBy partners include Artisan’s Asylum, New England FIRST Robotics, and Brandeis Maker Lab. Boston Children’s Museum and our CreatedBy partners look forward to this event all year – we are excited to inspire the next generation of creative thinkers and makers at CreatedBy e-Festival 2020 with FREE virtual content!
