Maker Faire Opens Saturday

Maker Faire is here again, our fourth annual event in the Bay Area. Once again, you just won’t believe how much there is to see and do at Maker Faire.

Makers were busy today setting up on Friday. In the morning, we had 400 kids visit the fairgrounds for a backstage tour and a chance to spend time with dozens of makers. By the end of the day over most of the makers had arrived. Over 750 came together for beer and a paella dinner outside — and countless conversations.

This time lapse recording of the day gives you some sense of how all the magic comes together on Friday — with a view of the rides on the midway rising up from the grass.

I hope to see many of you tomorrow. Bring the whole family. Remember to check for information on parking and public transit options. We’re open 10 am to 8 pm on Saturday and 10 am to 6 pm on Sunday.
