MORE ON FOURTH OF JULY INDEPENDENCE FOR AMERICANS

Maker Faire is an event created by Make magazine to "celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset".

Make Magazine assists independent event organizers in producing small-scale Maker Faire events in local communities. The Magazine calls independently-organized events "Mini Maker Faires." Community-driven Mini Maker Faires have sprouted up around the United States. Maker Faires are a groundswell of the people's response to the lack of solutions forthcoming from leadership of corporations and local government who seem to still be so enamored with global markets offered by Wall Street  they can't see the opportunities right where they live.

Make Magazine is the first magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself  (DIY) projects.  It unites, inspires and informs a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements and garages.  Make celebrates your right to make, bend, tweak, hack any technology to your will.

A BIG MAKER FAIRE IS COMING UP IN A FEW WEEKS IN DETROIT

Maker Faire Detroit returns to The Henry Ford for its 6th year on July 25-26 with a new location for the outdoor midway, new projects on display and more than 70 new makers debuting in Detroit for the first time.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2014 celebrated its ninth annual show with some 1100 makers and 130,000 people in attendance. (Note:  the San Mateo Maker Faire for 2015 is over.  It was held on May 16 and 17.)  World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Silver Spring, Paris, Rome, Oslo, Trondheim, Tokyo, Newcastle (UK), and Shenzhen are the home of larger-scale, “featured” Maker Faires and over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world. 

Maker Faires are a groundswell of the people's response to the lack of responsiveness and imagination from large, sluggish, bureaucratic multinational corporations who lost their ability to respond to current needs of people and the environment decades ago and are now dragging our economy down into the tarpit with them.
