About Maker Faire:


Maker Faire brings together families and individuals to celebrate the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and showcase all kinds of incredible projects. At Maker Faire, you’ll find arts and crafts, science and engineering, food and music, fire and water but what makes this event special is that all these interesting projects and smart, creative people belong together. They are actively and openly creating a maker culture.


In its simplest form, Maker Faire creates conversations with Makers. It is a show-and-tell format for people of all ages that brings out the “kid” in all of us. Maker Faire is a community-based learning event that inspires everyone to become a maker and connect to people and projects in their local community.


Houston Mini Maker Faire is being organized by Adil Jafry, Mike Hinkle, Jacob Shiach and the href="http://www.makerfairehouston.com/team">Make The Future Team.


href="http://www.makerfaire.com/" target="_blank">Maker Faire is the World’s Largest Show (and Tell) festival—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.

They are of all ages and backgrounds. Maker Faire’s goal is to entertain, inform, connect and inspire these thousands of Makers and aspiring Makers.


The inaugural Maker Faire was held in San Mateo, California and in 2012 celebrated its seventh annual Bay Area event with some 110,000 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 href="http://makerfaire.com/map.html" target="_blank">around the United States and the world,including here in Houston. 


Maker Faire is organized by href="http://makezine.com/magazine" target="_blank">MAKE magazine and supported by href="http://oreilly.com/" target="_blank">O’Reilly Media.
