Maker Faire Atlanta
Maker Faire Atlanta is an annual celebrtaion of all things do-it-yourself (or do-it-together). We create an event taht brings together people with diverse interests, ranging from art and carft to science and engineering, and we give them a space to show off their work. We inspire and educate our attendees through hands-on engagement with the makers.
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 2013 celebrated its eighth annual show with some 900 makers and 120,000 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, Tokyo, Silver Spring, Milwaukee and Atlanta 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.
