The Maker Faire concept was created in 2008 by Make magazine. With the first event taking place in California, the goal is to celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself mindset. It is a festival of creative and innovative science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) activities.

The event is free and open to the public.
