About Bay Area Maker Faire

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these "makers" come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

The inaugural Maker Faire was held in San Mateo, CA in 2006. Maker Faire Bay Area celebrated its sixth annual Bay Area event in 2011 with some 100,000 people in attendance.
