About Maker Faire

Maker Faire is an event created by Maker:  to “celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects, and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset”. Makers come to show their creations. Attendees come to glimpse the future... and to learn how to become makers themselves.

The first Maker Faire took place in 2006 in San Mateo, and over the last 13 years the fairs have gone global with more than 200 licensed Maker Faires in more than 40 countries happening each year.

  • Total Worldwide Faires - 200+
  • Global Attendees - 1.5M+
  • Social Media Followers - 3M+
  • Countries - 48+
