Share a ride to Maker Faire Bay Area 2009


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!

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
