We understand that sometimes genius procrastinates. But NOW is the time to enter your project, invention, creation or design for Maker Faire San Diego 2018! Be an exhibitor and showcase your awesomeness!

The entry deadline for exhibitors is just 7 days away! Space is limited so apply as soon as possible to ensure your spot!

Exhibitors come from all over the world.

People can do incredible things…

We’re going to be highlighting the people, places, and organizations that make Southern California a great place to live and work.

“We are looking for creative people who want to share their energy and talents with others,” says event producer Cody Nelson. “We are inviting artists, musicians, engineers, craftsmen, entrepreneurs, students, teachers, businesspeople, comedians and creative people of all ages and backgrounds to inspire attendees with what we as humans can do.”

Be an exhibitor whether you're a commercial enterprise, individual, start-up, non-profit, or anyone else!

… if they let themselves do it!

Nothing stops innovation faster than feeling like “I can’t do that.” The maker movement is all about empowerment and giving people the tools and communities to do those amazing things!  To build that robot, make that garden, create that thing that will help make the world a slightly better or more fun place. We’re looking to grow that human spirit!

An exhibitor is anyone who makes – we invite artists too!

Exhibitors at Maker Faire love sharing their craft and are passionate about their creations.Being an exhibitor is easy! You just have to love what you do.

Interested? Here are ways you can participate:

  • Show off your project(s), by demo or by discussing how you made them, and to inspire people to make.
  • Have a scheduled performance, set lengths vary.
  • Make a scheduled presentation, could be 12, 30, or 45 minutes!
  • As a sponsor or commercial maker, by selling your products or services.

You can apply for a booth AND apply as a presenter! You just need to send in a second application for the presentation.

Maker Faire San Diego is now in its fourth year. Every year we’ve broken attendance records. And that’s all because of our amazing maker community. Be a part of it!
