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. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community. Exhibitors can show their creativity, demonstrate their products or services and exchange ideas with like-minded, get in touch with potential customers or even investors. Vistors can enjoy the program at and around the Maker Faire, participate in workshops and events for young and old, learn soldering, making clay art or even welding.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA in 2006. More than 530,000 people experienced a Maker Faire in 2013. The robust growth of the Maker Movement is evidenced by the sheer increase of Maker Faire events held across the globe, and in the growth of total attendance: 64% more in 2013 than 2012 — and 335% more than 2011! World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, continued to grow, increasing 36% in its fourth year to welcome 75,000 people over two days. Community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), and Tokyo are the home of “featured” Maker Faires (200+ makers), and Shenzhen will be the 7th city to host a featured Maker Faire in 2014.
