This two-day, family-friendly event celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and features interactive exhibits organized by individual enthusiasts, hobbyist groups and clubs as well as student groups. It's for creative, resourceful folks who like to tinker and love to make things. Maker Faire is an opportunity to share what you do with others...

Organized by the staff of Make and Craft magazines, Maker Faire is a newfangled fair that brings together science, art, craft and engineering plus green, food and music in a fun, energized, and exciting public forum. The aim is to inspire people of all ages to roll up their sleeves and become makers. We encourage you to join the fun and enter a project to exhibit.

  1. I’m gonna build that satan’s head car from the simpsons episode with tom petty, keith richards, et all.

    and i’ll start an impromptu bong competition. you
    re all invited.

  2. I went last year and had a good time. But I can’t make that trip every year, and I hear the San Mateo one is better. What there REALLY needs to be, is a Boston Makers Faire. Of course, everyone would have to fly into Providence, because of the whole Logan airport security detail.

  3. #5 – We can’t even win a sports championship lately without sacrificing one student at the altar of law enforcement. (excessive force, it sucks)

    There should be a faire in Hartford CT, just to keep it out of Boston, but without resorting to NYC hotel prices.
