The Word Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a two-day family-friendly festival that takes place at the Old World's Fair grounds in Corona, Queens. 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.

The BUST Craftacular @ World Maker Faire is an area inside the World Maker Faire that features over 70 of the best vendors of unique, handcrafted wares, including jewelry, clothing, homewares, tech toys, food, and more, plus free workshops and classes for all ages—all day long.
