Maker Faire North Carolina FAQ > Frequently Asked Questions > Will This be Like the Flagship Maker Faires in CA & NY?
In spirit, yes. In size? Not quite yet. Maker Faire started in the Bay Area in California and has been held there for several years. Maker Faire:NC is a "mini Maker Faire" regional event that gives people from the local area access to all the fun for far less expense.
Maker Faire North Carolina has grown from roughly 2000 attendees in 2010 to almost 4000 in 2012.
