From beer to drones and textiles to rockets, Maker Faire San Diego is gearing up for its third edition in Balboa Park.
Organizers of the geeky festival are reminding the public of the Sept. 8 entry deadline. The event is 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 7-8.
“Maker Faire is not designed like any standard trade show or conference — it’s a fun, interactive maze of demonstrations, exhibits, workshops and displays,” says Cody Nelson, director of events and public programs for the Balboa Park Cultural Partnership.
“Imagine the historical state fairs where everyone arrives with their wares and sets up their exhibit,” Nelson said. “We have different kinds of exhibit areas to accommodate the diversity of projects, and we encourage makers to create their own look and feel.”
Entry form is here. Entries can be submitted by individuals or by groups, such as hobbyist clubs and schools.
