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.
Conceived and started by the editors of Make: magazine in 2006 in San Mateo, CA, Maker Faire has grown to a network of over 130 Maker Faires around the globe. In 2014, the flagship San Mateo event celebrated its ninth year and welcomed some 1100 makers and 130,000 attendees. World Maker Faire New York, the other Make: produced event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 75,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Silver Spring, Orlando, Rome, Oslo, Newcastle (UK), Tokyo, Shenzhen and now Orlando host our “featured” Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires inspire and ignite creative communities everywhere.
Located in Sebastopol and Berkeley, 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.
