Makers Arcade is an artisan experience founded in 2014 by Rebecca Chase and Jen Byard as a place where community and connection could be enjoyed around a shared love for art and creativity.

After many years of providing the San Diego community with this amazing celebration of creative talent, in 2021, Makers Arcade was acquired by the founders of the San Diego Made Factory with the goal of continuing this event with the same passion and vision that Rebecca and Jen had originally put forth.

San Diego’s artist community is continually growing with unique expressions throughout the city, and Makers Arcade is our contribution to this ongoing movement that the event organizers, past and present, appreciate and believe in so much. 

Whether it is the local artists selling their handmade goods, the live music, the hand crafted cocktails, the one of a kind food trucks, or the beautifully designed spaces themselves, Makers Arcade creates an environment of inspiration, welcome and oh so much fun.
