Manufacturing Day℠ is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufacturers. Manufacturing Day occurs on the first Friday in October — this year Manufacturing Day is Oct 5, 2018.
While Manufacturing Day is officially Oct. 5, companies and community organizations should plan their events on the date in October that works best for them. No matter the date, events should be registered on the site and can be marked as public or invitation-only events.
Join us in celebrating the manufacturers in America! If you would like to participate in the event view the Manufacturing Day website to see events in your area. If you are interested in hosting your own Manufacturing Day event click here for more info.
Manufacturing is a huge part of the American economy and we can’t wait to celebrate all the accomplishments and contributions manufacturers make!
