Take a journey through Balboa Park, and celebrate the second annual Maker Faire San Diego showcasing creative and resourceful people in the areas of science and technology, engineering, craft beer, arts, and crafts

Come say hello to us at the Beer Garden both Saturday & Sunday!
On Sunday our head Brewer and R&D Brewer will be talking about the magic of mead and showing you how to make mead from home!

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

Maker Faire San Diego is a hands-on visual feast of invention and creativity and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s for innovative, creative people who like to tinker and love to create, and also for those curious minds who want to see what new and innovative things are just around the corner.

Maker Faire San Diego is a partnership between the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership (BPCP) and the San Diego Makers Guild.  Over 250 local and regional makers display their creations at Balboa Park – mostly inside participating museums. This multi-museum event showcases innovation in San Diego.

Makers are a breed of people who see the possible and then make it happen. It’s good for self esteem, it’s good for education, and it’s good for economic development. Our goal is to bring as many San Diego makers together to celebrate the multifaceted fields of making. Become a part of the Maker Movement!
