100 Maker Faires in 2013!


The Maker mother ship has issued the amazing and encouraging data from this past year in Maker Faires!

More than 530,000 people experienced a Maker Faire in 2013. The robust growth of the Maker Movement is evidenced by the sheer increase of Maker Faire events held across the globe, and in the growth of total attendance:  64% more in 2013 than 2012 — and 335% more than 2011!
