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.
The original Maker Faire 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 six years to 900+ makers and 95,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Silver Spring, Rome, Oslo, Tokyo, and Newcastle (UK) are the home of larger-scale, "featured" 2015 Maker Faires and over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world, including right here in Portland!
