We’re Back Baby! Tickets Are NOW ON SALE!

We have awesome news that we’ve been eager to share! And now we can! We will indeed be having a physical event this August! It’s been long enough since we have all come together for an in-person event, and as California continues to open up, we have been given the go-ahead.
First, the dates. This year the show will be TWO days instead of three: Saturday, August 28th, and Sunday, August 29th at the San Jose Convention Center. For safety. overall attendance numbers are more limited than in past years, and our max capacity per day will be guided by State and local health department guidelines. 

Safety is, of course, one of our biggest concerns this year for everyone who attends. We will be strictly following all guidelines and mandates to ensure everyone is comfortable and able to safely enjoy getting back out into the world (and exulting over our shared obsessions!). Our health policy will be clearly articulated on our website once we have guidance from both California and the city of San Jose. 


Ticket sales and guest announcements have begun! Along with Adam Savage, we’ll have as many of the elements of the show you’ve come to know and love, with a specific emphasis on even more maker and creator experiences. 

We will be emailing everyone who had purchased tickets to the original SiliCon 2020 with details about their tickets in the coming days.


Exhibitors will be receiving applications in the next 10 days, and anyone interested in becoming a new exhibitor can check out our Interested in Exhibiting page.

We look forward to seeing you all soon!


The Team at SiliCon with Adam Savage

SiliCon With Adam Savage is Where Maker, Science, Technology and Pop Culture Collide!

“I’m not a sculptor; I’m a hard-edged model maker. You give me a drawing, you give me a prop to replicate, you give me a crane, scaffolding, parts from ‘Star Wars’ – especially parts from ‘Star Wars’ – I can do this stuff all day long. It’s exactly how I made my living for 15 years.”

Our Passion Behind SiliCon 

Founded in 2014, SiliCon with Adam Savage was the vision of Rick White and Steve Wozniak as they sought to bring together the best of technology and pop culture. Having grown every year since then, Adam Savage joined in 2019 to bring a new dimension to the event which embraced the maker ethos and community. Adam has built everything from theater sets to miniature particle accelerators. From spaceships to animatronic arms. He’s made Rube Goldberg machines, hand props and spacesuits. His online videos have generated over 230 million page views. He’s written for Popular Mechanics, the Wall Street Journal and Wired Magazine, and is a published author with his latest book, “Every Tool Is A Hammer.” His program “Mythbusters” produced 270 episodes that aired in over 100 countries for 14 years. We believe in the ability of all humans to create the improbable.  Watch Adam’s Ted Talk below!
