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 of all ages and backgrounds gather together to show what they are making and share what they are learning.
Maker Faire celebrated 131 Faires in 2014 alone and has reached over 1.5 million attendees globally since it launched in San Mateo, California, in 2006, less than a year after the publication of the first Make: magazine in 2005. The 10th annual Maker Faire Bay Area welcomed some 1,200 makers and 145,000 attendees. World Maker Faire New York, the East Coast flagship event, has grown in five years to 830+ makers and 85,000 attendees. Atlanta, Detroit, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Orlando, Paris, Rome, Oslo, Newcastle (UK), Tokyo, Trondheim, Silver Spring and Shenzhen host our "featured" Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires inspire and ignite creative communities everywhere around the United States and internationally.
Located in San Francisco, California, Maker Media has been widely credited with jumpstarting the worldwide Maker Movement, which has been a transforming force in innovation, culture, and education. In addition to publishing Make: magazine and producing Maker Faire, Maker Media develops "getting started" kits and books it sells through its Maker Shed store as well as other retail channels.
A celebration of DIY culture, World Maker Faire New York 2015 runs Saturday-Sunday, September 26-27, at the New York Hall of Science, 47-01 111th Street, Queens, NY 11368.
