Event Information

The 6th Annual Maker Faire Bay Area returns to the San Mateo Event Center this weekend, May 30-31.  It's the world's largest DIY festival and one of the most creative, stimulating, flat-out fun family events around. It features anything and everything that people make themselves -- from robotics to mechanical contraptions to recycled art to old-fashioned, homemade, traditional arts and crafts -- and celebrates individual creativity, grassroots innovation and the "Yes We Can" attitude.   To quote a Maker Faire devotee:  "Stuff gets smelted, explodes, bikes get decorated, obsessive people show what odd things they make in their basements, wonderful art people have booths where kids can make magical stuff from trash, there is an entire building devoted to robots and lego robot stuff, there are rocket competitions, and so forth. Seriously. Dream City."   Visit for details.
