Maker Faire San Diego

Maker Faire San Diego is a celebration of anyone who makes anything and can teach others to make it, too. Maker Faire San Diego is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, artists, students and commercial exhibitors. At this two-day faire, Maker exhibits are woven throughout Balboa Park grounds and into participating museums. The participatory model brings new visitors to the Park, provides exposure for museums, and invites a myriad of sponsorship opportunities. Learn more
