About RVA MakerFest

RVA MAKERFEST, is a pending Virginia nonstock corporation consisting of volunteers from a number of Richmond-area companies and groups. As an organization, the goals of RVA MakerFest are:

  • To break down the silos between existing makers and maker groups to encourage a collaborative DIY community in Metro Richmond.
  • Inspire all Richmonders to embrace tinkering and creation as paths to learning and innovation
  • To advance the STEAM disciplines--science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics--among children to seed more makers
