Manufacturing Day℠, which officially occurs on Oct. 7, is a celebration of modern manufacturing designed to amplify the voice of individual manufacturers and coordinate a collective chorus of manufacturers with common concerns and challenges. Companies can plan their events on any date and register their event on the mfgday site in order to access free event planning and resources.

The four national co-producers include: the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, International; National Association of Manufacturers; Manufacturing Extension Partnership; and the Manufacturing Institute.

According to the site, there are 205 MFG DAY events already planned and registered, including state and local ones focused around additive manufacturing, precision machining, measurement, molding, tooling, and more.
