The first Maker Faire Austin takes place October 20th & 21st at the Travis County Fairgrounds. Tickets are now on sale, including camping passes if you want to stay through the weekend and camp on the fairgrounds.
In a nutshell, Maker Faire is a two-day, public gathering of tech DIY enthusiasts, teachers, students, tinkerers, hobbyists, inventors, science clubs, authors, manufacturers and retailers, print and broadcast media all coming together to share their projects. There will be scheduled performances, demonstrations, and an abundance of hands-on activities, all designed for an amazing and thrilling experience for those who attend!
