What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a hands-on, visual festival celebrating the Maker Movement and DIY culture. It’s for innovative, curious people who enjoy creating and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show their hobbies, experiments, and projects.

We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth – glimpse the future and get inspired!
