"I'm delighted that Maker Faire has chosen to return to San Mateo County and the Event Center. This will be a great weekend for all the creative folks of Northern California and those who visit," said Groom. "America has such a thirst right now for creative self-expression and there's an incredible need for out-of-the-box innovation. Maker Faire embodies the best of both these worlds in a way that's smart and fun. We couldn't be happier to welcome Maker Faire to San Mateo and to declare May 30th & 31st, Maker's Weekend."
This two-day, family-friendly event invites everyone to MAKE, create, learn, invent, CRAFT, recycle, think, play, and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology.
This year's theme is Re-Make America, inspired by President Obama's all to "begin again the work of remaking America," and will celebrate those whom he declared are "the risk takers, the doers, and the makers of things."
