About Maker Faire San Diego

Maker Faire San Diego is a hands-on visual feast of invention and creativity and a celebration of the Maker movement. Balboa Park is host to this celebration of technology, arts, craftsmanship, science, and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) culture. It’s for innovative, creative people who like to tinker and love to create, and also for those curious minds who want to see what new and innovative things are just around the corner.

Maker Faire San Diego is a partnership between the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership (BPCP) and the San Diego Makers Guild.  Over 200 local and regional makers display their creations at Balboa Park – mostly inside participating museums. This multi-museum event showcases innovation in San Diego.

Makers are people who see the possible and then make it happen. It’s good for self esteem, it’s good for education, and it’s good for economic development. Our goal is to bring as many San Diego makers together to celebrate the multifaceted fields of making. Become a part of the Maker Movement!
