More Information

Remember, this event is all about celebrating the act of making. A project doesn’t have to be complete to be considered. First and foremost, we’re looking for exhibitors who can give attendees the chance to learn. That could be through demonstrations, by letting them play-test your creations, or any number of ways! Afterall, Maker Faire wouldn’t be a Maker Faire without the plethora of hands-on activities and interactives. Applicants with an activity, demonstration, or interactive element are given priority status.

Makers can exhibit absolutely free! Vendors, businesses, and non-profits, do have to pay a small fee. Click here to learn more.

In addition to sharing passion projects and innovations with enthusiastic crowds, exhibitors will also have an exclusive opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow makers during the Maker After-Party!

Exhibited in 2016? We’d love to have you back. Have a friend you think should exhibit? Encourage them to apply!
