2023 Details

Hatch Fest (the event formerly known as Maker Faire) will be held on Saturday, June 17, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. with Juneteenth Celebration and St. Michael’s Strawberry Festival

HATCH stands for Hamilton County Arts, Technology, Craft, and Heritage, and this  festival is a multi-faceted celebration of all that makes Hamilton County such a wonderful place! Artisans, Makers and Craftspeople from Noblesville and surrounding areas will have amazing one-of-a-kind creations to sell and area nonprofits and businesses will be on display around the Courthouse Square with activities, demonstrations, performances and more. This event combines the St. Michael’s Strawberry Festival, SERVE Noblesville’s F.U.N. fest, and a gathering of makers and artists from Nickel Plate Arts, and Juneteenth festivities. Support local emerging entrepreneurs, do some Father’s Day shopping, celebrate Juneteenth, and grab some strawberry shortcake! We can’t wait to see you this June.

For additional information regarding plans for Juneteenth and if you would like to be involved, contact amcgill@nickelplatearts.org


Nickel Plate Arts’ Hatch Fest will showcase the works of our talented local artisans and makers on the downtown Noblesville Courthouse Square. Thanks to the Hamilton County Community Foundation, this year all Kid Entrepreneurs–makers ages 17 and under–will have their booth fee waived! This event will happen in conjunction with St. Michael’s Strawberry Festival, a beloved (and delicious!) annual event! Come snack on a delicious strawberry shortcake while perusing a variety of handmade goods, including wood items, handmade books, pottery, bath and body items, craft art, jewelry, home decor, and more. Plus this year we will partner with FUN Fest with SERVE Noblesville. Don’t miss this family-friendly event!
