Maker Faire, the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth, is a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness, and celebration of the Maker Movement. Maker Faire was born in 2005 out of the launch of Make: magazine as an opportunity for makers of all skills, interests, and ages to connect face-to-face and share their projects, insights, and excitement about making. Read more about the history of the Maker Movement and Maker Faire here.
