Correction: I counted only 11 major Maker Faires (not dozens), but there are 61 mini-Maker Faires in 2013. The largest Maker Faire is the original Bay Area event, and they had around 120k people this year. Here are the cities with major Maker Faires: Seoul (Korea) Raleigh (NC) Kansas City (KS) Detroit (MI) Hannover (Germany) Fort Wayne Regional (IN) World New York (NYC) Rome (Italy) Bay Area (San Mateo, CA) Taipei (Taiwan) Newcastle (UK)

Do these appear all over the country or just at select locations? How can you find out about one of these near you comfortably in advance?

What did you see that I missed? Or go looking for that you failed to find?
