Join the Maker Community
From tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers, Maker Faire is where novices and experts of all ages come together to show what they’ve made and share what they’ve learned. A community built on curiosity, collaboration, and resourcefulness, celebrating the best of the global maker movement.
The mothership is landing! Immerse yourself in imagination and innovation this October as Maker Faire Bay Area sets up on Mare Island for the 15th edition of the original celebration of invention, creativity, curiosity, and hands-on learning.
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness. It’s a place where people show what they're making and share what they're learning. What do you make?
Each year, over 100 independently organized Maker Faires occur around the world. Some host hundreds of international makers; others showcase a local community. At all, participants come to share, learn, and get inspired.
