Maker Faire Bay Area 2018

May 18, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - May 20, 2018 @ 6:00 pm

Maker Faire 2018

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.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2017 celebrated its twelfth annual show with some 1200 makers and 125,000 people in attendance.  World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in six years to 900+ makers and 95,000 attendees.  Forty larger scale Maker Faires occur in cities  around the world—Berlin, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shenzhen to name a few—and over 170 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced in the Unitied States and in 43 other countires around the world.

Make sure to stop by Samtec’s booth at the maker faire for some information on our products and kits for makers.  For more information, please visit the show’s official website.
