About Maker Faire:
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 2014 celebrated its ninth annual show with some 1100 makers and 125,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in three years to 500+ makers and 55,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Newcastle (UK), Rome, Shenzhen, Oslo, Atlanta and Tokyo are the home of “featured” 2014 Maker Faires (200+ makers), and community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world.

What is a Maker?
We are parents, students, scientists, and garage tinkerers. We are young and old and we all share a love for innovation, creativity and inspiring others to make something—anything—as long as it makes people happy.
The 2014 Maker Faire Orlando at the Orlando Science Center and surrounding area is bigger then ever before. More exhibits, more crazy creations, and more Makers! You’ll enjoy 2-days packed with exhibits and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.
