Maker Faire San Diego 2016 is on!

Maker Faire San Diego is BACK! With air rockets, robots, towering sculptures, and a world of virtual reality, you are invited to be creative, engage with amazing technology, and get your hands dirty on October 1+2 in Balboa Park.

Japanese Friendship Garden Museum of Photographic Arts Reuben H. Fleet Science Center San Diego Air & Space Museum San Diego Automotive Museum San Diego Hall of Champions San Diego History Center San Diego Model Railroad Museum San Diego Museum of Man San Diego Natural History Museum The Old Globe

Still not sure what Maker Faire is all about? Trying to figure out how to describe it to your friends? It’s part high-tech science fair, part-county fair, part something entirely new. Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, engineers, artists, scientists, artisans, machinists, cosplayers, and so much more. Makers will be sharing, showing, and making awe-inspiring creations that are practical, built for fun, or constructed just to push the limits of imagination and technology. And most importantly? All of these makers don’t just want to show you what they have created, they want to teach you how you can do it too. There will be lots of hands-on activities and enthusiastic people who will talk to you about making anything you can dream up. This will be a huge collaborative effort between the San Diego Makers Guild, Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, and the City of San Diego. Stay tuned for the latest updates as we work to showcase innovators and creators of all kinds. Want a sneak-peek of what you’ll see at Maker Faire San Diego? The North County Mini Maker Faire is happening this weekend, June 18th-19th, at the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum in Vista, CA. Check it out. We look forward to seeing you in October!
