Like Never Before

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. You'll see performances from local artist and speakers, unbelievable imagination from around the valley, and stunning showcases of innovation from throughout the state.

What will I see at a Maker Faire?

A Maker Faire is composed of an exciting mix of Makers displaying their hand-made projects, performers showing their talent, and organizations revealing ideas and trends of the future.

Why did you spell fair wrong?

Though a typical fair is spelt with four letters (fair), "Maker Faire" always ends with an "e" (Faire). It's a nod to the talented makers in our history that have brought us to where we are now.
