Maker Faire Bay Area will not be held this May in 2020. Numerous factors including the potential impact of coronavirus as well as the transition last summer of Maker Media to Make: Community have influenced this decision. We have looked at dates for Maker Faire Bay Area in the Fall but we won’t decide to go ahead with an event until we can evaluate the impact and implications of this situation.
We appreciate the support and participation of so many makers and attendees for fourteen years at Maker Faire Bay Area in San Mateo. We continue to see the positive impact that the maker movement is having on education, community building, and business. We are thinking of new ways that we might create connections within the community and help grow and develop the community of makers around the world.
Thanks for a Spectacular Weekend!
