WHO WHAT WHERE MAKER FAIRE
MAKER FAIRE 2012 is right around the corner. Over the years Maker Faire newbies have asked us what is the Maker Faire? What does it consist of, this so-called DIY Festival? Is there one near my town and a host of other questions about the Faire in general. Event City has attempted to define this Faire which had its conception almost 10 years ago in beautiful sunny San Mateo California. Visiting the Maker Faire Blog, one is hard-pressed to find an actual description on the official festival website. Here is what we found after about an hour of searching – “Maker Faire is a mind-blowing, family-friendly event celebrating technology, science, and craft projects with a DIY mindset.” I guess that description works. We tend to see this crazy, wild, eclectic, fun and invigorating festival far beyond a corporate description, and any Maker Faire veteran will tell you the Faire is far from corporate. Just the process of walking through this event expands one’s creative horizons to heights that can be unimaginable. Here’s our take on the Maker Faire, what is yours?
Maker Faire, truly an eclectic collection of the product of a vast amount of energy of the human’s right brain interacting with their left hemisphere to create, in many cases unbelievable experiences, some of which, just happen to be, products that you and I could use on a daily basis.
Coming to the Maker Faire is like visiting Disneyland inside of a computer built by a carpenter. I’ve hear people say, “There is something here for everyone”, and in a matter of fact they are right on the money, all interest, all races, all ages, all demographics, truly something for everybody. What exactly will you see at a Maker Faire, you don’t know until you are there.
