Kickoff Celebration for 2018 NoVa Maker Faire Scheduled, But Spring Event Leaving Reston

A kickoff celebration for the 2018 NoVa Maker Faire will take place next week in Reston, but the event itself has found a new home.

Those interested in the Maker Faire are invited to the kickoff event from 7-9 p.m. Wednesday at the NoVa Labs maker space (1916 Isaac Newton Square). The event will include the opportunity to experience the maker space, meet the Maker Faire team, meet fellow makers and hear about projects that are in the works. Anyone wishing to attend is invited to RSVP online.

The event itself, which has been held in previous years at South Lakes High School and Langston Hughes Middle School, will take place Sunday, March 18 at George Mason University in Fairfax. Tickets will soon go on sale.

According to a press release, the change was made “to provide more space to promote creativity and innovation in the region.”

The call for makers for the event is now open. Early-bird submissions are due Nov. 26, while regular submissions are due by Jan. 14.
