Our Maker Faire Bay Area 2009 is only 4 weeks away on May 30th and 31st at the San Mateo County Fairgrounds! Maker Faire is the world’s largest DIY festival, so you won’t want to miss it. In a nutshell, it’s a two-day, family-friendly event to MAKE, create, learn, invent, CRAFT, recycle, think, play, and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology.

Every year, we strive to green our festival more and more. Last year, about 65,000 people came out to play with us, and this year we’re expecting even more. If you are planning on joining us (which we hope you are), it’s not too early to plan how you’ll be getting there. One great option is to share a ride. We’ve set up a Maker Faire page on PickupPal to make coordinating that ride share easier. Check it out, make some new friends, and we’ll see you there!

Pssst, you can also still get discounted advanced purchase pricing on your Maker Faire tickets until May 20th!

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
