History San Jose has recently announced that they are launching San Jose's first Maker Faire event. The event will celebrate and showcase inventors, tinkerers, builders, crafters, and other creatives. Instead of trying to describe it in any more depth than that, I'll let the one minute video below do the work.
The inaugural San Jose Mini Maker Faire will take place on Sunday, September 6th from 10am-6pm at History San Jose. For more information (or to register as a "maker") head over here.
