Manufacturing Month

Launched annually on the first Friday in October with events that continue throughout the month, MFG Day 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. MFG Day empowers manufacturers to come together to address their collective challenges so they can help their communities and future generations thrive.

This page will be updated as 2023 plans unfold – and in Vermont, we’ll be celebrating the entire month of October! 

Plan, Host, Find – All you need to know about MFG Day/ Month

Planning your MFG Day event Check out the dozens of ways you and your teams can host an event – webinars, toolkits and so much more are at your fingertips to plan your best manufacturing event ever! Since MFG Day’s main focus is careers in manufacturing, we highly encourage you to reach out to your local Career & Technical Education Center (CTE). Be sure to view previously recorded webinars at MFG Day Webinars.

Host An Event Registering your event contributes to the larger MFG Day phenomenon in a major way. The more events we know about, the more people we can say we’ve affected — which inspires more interest in manufacturing.  MFG Day makes a big impact in shifting the misconception of modern manufacturing.  Tell your story by opening your doors – physically or virtually – and hosting an event with students, parents, educators, media, community leaders and elected officials.  Registered events are reviewed for completeness and are generally made public within 24 hours after registrations are submitted.
