What is DaVinci’s Faire anyway?

  • DaVinci’s Faire is a multi-generational sensory-rich community engagement centered on science, technology, makers, inventors and lifelong learners in a unique open-spaces format.
  • DaVinci’s Faire can be described in three words: Share ~ Learn ~ Grow. Every attendee – no matter how old or young – has a story to tell and an expertise to share.
  • DaVinci’s Faire is a Free Community Event supported by a group of dedicated volunteers, Manatee County Schools, Library services and kept free with the help of our generous sponsors.

Join life-long learners, creatives, geeks, business people, entrepreneurs, makers, inventors, investors, speakers, robotic enthusiasts, social gurus, information technology enthusiasts, educators, science & engineering people, gamers who dabble in the latest & greatest board games, IoT innovators, and much more.

The event will include the following:

  • Tech Talks – keynotes, panel discussions, shared ideas and displays of today’s coolest technologies
  • Robot competition rinks, drones and F1 race cars – designed and built by area STEM students
  • Manatee STEM Competition – Don’t miss the cool projects and your chance to vote for the Peoples’ Choice Award
  • Deconstruct Zone – Who doesn’t like to take things apart when you don’t have to put them back together!?
  • Microsoft gaming and virtual reality zone – come and explore some of the latest and greatest tech that will blow your mind!
  • Coding lab for kids with progressive levels for real learning – provided by local non-profit Little Geniuses
