What to expect to see and experience at Maker Faire
You can expect to have the time of your life! You'll be surprised and intrigued with every corner you turn. Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of Makers of all kinds, attractions and performances, presentations from leaders of the Maker Movement, and many hands-on activities to get ignite the fire in you to become a Maker. Learn to solder, make Rube Goldberg machines, Fly rockets and drones, Take apart electronics, build brush bots, race cards. You’ll also discover the latest kid friendly technology from Makey Makey, Littlebits and Arduino to 3D Printing and Laser cutting.
Want to be a Part of the Maker Faire?
Our call for Makers is always open! We encourage you and your kids to start making - to create projects that combine science, art, performance, creative reuse, and technology - that can be shared at the Faire. Bubble machines, Bike blenders, robots, remote control cars, kinetic sculptures, bluetooth fan boats, tiny hovercrafts, jewelry, 3D Printing, recycled fashion, homemade musical instruments, drone flying, virtual reality, gaming, knitting, sewing, crafts - the sky is the limit. At Maker Faire, there are no winners or losers -- anything that's cool is fair game. It's not a competition, and there aren't prizes for Maker submissions, so there are no judges deciding who has succeeded and who has failed. It's a celebration of creativity, innovation and DIY (do-it-yourself) culture.

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.
The original Maker Faire event is supported by Make Magazine and Maker Media and held in San Mateo, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth annual show with some 1100+ makers and 145,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. In addition, over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.
