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 place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning. Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers 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, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth annual show with some 1,200 makers and 145,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in five years to 900+ makers and 90,000 attendees. 23 other larger scale Maker Faires occur in cities around the world—Detroit, Atlanta, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shenzhen to name a few—and over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.
This year’s initial lineup includes:
- The Big-Brained Superheroes
- Tiny Houses
- Makerologist Interactive Exhibits
- R2 Builders Club
