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!

In 2012 there will be close to 60 Mini Maker Faires around the globe. Mini Maker Faires are organized by individuals, hackerspaces and maker groups, schools, and larger institutions like science museums. They are diverse in scope, resources and origin, but all share an interest in connecting and celebrating makers.
At World Maker Faire New York next weekend, over twenty such Mini Maker Faire producers will be meeting up, telling stories, and learning about new tools.
If you are interested in meeting some of these folks and learning more about our Mini Maker Faire program, please come out to Maker Faire New York for our Sunday 11 a.m. morning session “Mini Maker Faires: Building Local Maker Community Around the Globe.” Note that if you can’t make it, you can watch the livestream at google.com/+MAKE.
