History of Maker Faire
The inaugural Maker Faire was held in San Mateo, CA in 2006. Maker Faire Bay Area celebrated its sixth annual Bay Area event in 2011 with 100,000 people in attendance. As Maker Faire has grown in popularity and relevance, additional flagship Faires were launched in 2010 in Detroit and New York City. Community-driven, independently produced Mini Maker Faire events inspired by Maker Faire are now being produced around the World.
