Here is yet another fabulous event (although not in Redwood City) which might interest you this weekend: it’s the Maker Faire – Bay Area which, if you haven’t heard of it, is a massive event to celebrate arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset.
It’s this Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22 (10 am – 8 pm Saturday; 10 am – 6 pm Sunday) at the San Mateo County Event Center, 2495 South Delaware Street, in the City of San Mateo. The ticket cost is $10 – $25.
Maker Faire celebrates things people create themselves — from rockets and robots, to DIY biology and hacked everything. The family-friendly event for creative people of all ages and skill levels offers two days of exhibits, activities, instruction and information from over 600 makers. The event is projected to draw 95,000 people from the Bay Area and beyond who want to marvel and be inspired by the world of “making.”
