“Celebrate Manufacturing Month Together”

Calendar of Regional Manufacturing Month Events

Held annually on the first Friday in October with events that continue throughout the month, MFG Day—Manufacturing Month—helps show the reality of modern manufacturing careers by encouraging thousands of companies and educational institutions around the nation to open their doors to students, parents, teachers and community leaders. As manufacturers seek to fill 4 million high-skill, high-tech and high-paying jobs over the next decade, MFG Day empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.
