“MMofA’s Makers Market and Open House is a signature event for families and visitors of all ages that officially kicks off the summer,” said Executive Director Jon Carfagno. “From hands-on activities, to touring the galleries, to supporting local entrepreneurs, you don’t want to miss the celebration of creativity and community.”

Vendors will be offering a variety of handmade items, such as jewelry, pottery, self-care products, and more. Denver Hawsey will provide live music, and tasty treats will be available from a variety of food trucks.
