Record number of visitors at Maker Faire Paris

This post is coming to you live from Maker Faire Paris in France, being held all weekend at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.

This weekend there are four Maker Faires happening around the world. Two are in the United States the North Little Rock Mini Maker Faire in Arkansas and the Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire in Illinois, however there is also the  Jinqiao Mini Maker Faire being held in Shanghai, China, and of course the biggest of the four, Maker Faire Paris which kicked off yesterday to record numbers of attendees at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles in Paris, France.

This year’s faire is the second here in Paris. With 739 makers showing 220 projects, the faire saw over 16,000 visitors on its first day, more than double the number of attendees the faire drew last year — and there’s still a whole day to go.

But if you can’t make it to Maker Faire Paris this weekend, our biggest faire of the year is coming up in just two weeks time. Over the weekend of May 16th and 17th it is the 10th annual Maker Faire Bay Area, and there’s still time to get advanced tickets. Prices will go up on the door.

So roll up, roll up, for the greatest show (and tell) on Earth.
