About SageFen Maker Fest

SageFen Maker Fest is an all-volunteer science-fiction/fantasy creation focused convention. We’re dedicated to the sharing of creative knowledge among fans and fellow creatives.

We’re a home-grown convention!

Sagefen Inc. and it’s namesake event, SageFen Maker Fest, is founded by Pacific Northwest fans with decades of experience as professionals, teachers, engineers, builders, and creators who love teaching, sharing, creating, and learning. 

SageFen Maker Fest is a home-grown, all-volunteer-run sci-fi/fantasy maker convention. A celebration of the creativeness that is fandom, we’re dedicated to the sharing of knowledge among fans and fellow creatives. We welcome everyone who loves the creative process and wants to share that love with other fans. 

Debuting in the spring of 2022, SageFen celebrates the creativity of the sci-fi/fantasy community. Makers and Creatives of Fandom share their knowledge in workshops and demonstrations, growing and teaching the fandom for the next generation. We host vendors, artists, and makers from around the Pacific Northwest. As an event focused on learning, we are pleased to share our status as a Washington State non-profit and a federally recognized 501c3.
