What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is the world’s biggest family-friendly showcase of inventions and creativity that gathers together enthusiasts, crafters, and educators across the country.

Makers come to show their creations and visitors come to try new things firsthand. The festival is the perfect combination of modern technologies, traditional crafts, science and design.

Who is a maker?

A maker is an innovator, scientist, designer and an enthusiast. Anyone who is not satisfied with the things we have at our disposal and creates things brand new while sharing the craft with other people.

The Maker movement is not defined by specific activities but the general defining characteristics are that it contributes to innovation, entrepreneurship and democratizes access to production technologies through open workshops.
