Making. Building. Creating. Doing. A celebration of all of these things (and more) is coming up next month in Northwest Arkansas.

Tinkerfest, the one-day celebration of “creativity, curiosity, and hands-on learing” is set for 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Scott Family Amazeum, located at 1009 Museum Way in Bentonville.

The event will feature science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) activities created by the local maker community, partner museums from across the country, and the Amazeum team, along with presentations by makers, tinkerers, artists, and local creative folks sharing their work. In addition, a vehicle will be dismantled at this year’s event.

Admission to Tinkerfest is included in the paid daily admission / membership at the museum.
