Zone 5 was new at last years (2014) World Maker Faire and Zone 6 is new this year. This zone is very leafy and extremely pleasant part of Flushing Meadow. The pace really drops off in these zones and some consideration could/should be given to mixing in some of the more lively and popular regular exhibitors. I was told that last year some makers assigned to zone 5 complained that they didn’t get the foot traffic of some of the zones right near the main gate.
Visually this area does have a very different feel to it. Zone 5 contained sub zones on sustainability, especially transport and a stage area for speakers. The maker exhibits were much more thinly spread in the area and could certainly accommodate a lot more in future years.
Zone 6 was devoted to spectacle including the Life-Sized-Mouse-Trap, Power-Racing-Series and Power-tool-drag-racing.
You can get an idea of how the faire is laid out from the image below showing the site map for World Maker Faire 2015 and the same information from Google Maps.
This concludes my blog posts on World Maker Faire 2015.
