A two-day, family-friendly festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement.
Join the creative minds at work in the Bay Area May 18th and 19th for the Maker Faire. Maker Faire Bay Area is a family-friendly festival involving creativity, resourcefulness, and invention. It is also intended to celebrate the overall Maker movement.
Maker Faire is entirely something new but can be compared to being part science fair and part county fair. The event welcomes all ages and a broad audience of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, hobbyists, science clubs, authors, artists, and students. All these people make something and thus fall into the classification of ‘makers’, and bringing them together to show and share what they have made is the intention of the Maker Faire.
The event is reaching international recognition this year in over 60 community-driven Mini Maker Faires including Tokyo and Rome. However, this events heart is still in the Bay Area with its’ origins being there since 2006. Maker Faire desires to be forward-looking and showcase makers who are exploring new forms and new technologies. Maker Faire desires this innovation and experimentation across science, engineering, art, performance, and craft.
The crowd is full of interesting, curious minds that enjoy learning and sharing their knowledge. The Faire drives to create a community for these people who have no other place to share what they do. Maker Faire makes these projects and ideas that we do not see everyday visible.
