What is Manufacturing Day?

Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Although Manufacturing Day officially occurs on the first Friday in October—this year is Oct 7, 2016—any day can be a Manufacturing Day.

Companies and community organizations should plan their events on the date that works best for them and their community. Any day of the year can be Manufacturing Day. All events should be registered on this site no matter what date they are scheduled. Only registered event hosts have access to all of the free event planning and execution resources created by the national co-producers.
