About Maker Faire:
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth — a family-friendly showcase of invention creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a where people show what are making and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, and in 2016 celebrated its eleventh annual show with some 1200+ makers and 150,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in five years to 900+ makers and 90,000 attendees. Thirty-two other larger scale Maker Faires occur in cities around the world — Detroit, Atlanta, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shenzhen to name few — and over 150 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.
