The Year of 100 Maker Faires!

This was a banner year for Maker Faires!  In the not-so-slow progression of community-based Mini Maker Faires that’s been going on since the Mini-Maker-Faire movement began in 2009, this is the year in which there were exactly 100 Maker Faires taking place across the world… and more than 530,000 people were able to have the Maker Faire experience!  The Maker Movement is booming  and we are so glad that Austin is a part of it.  Read more about it here on the Makezine blog.Maker Faire Eight Year Growth Slide
