Call For Makers

Calling all Makers!

Avery Print from the Web, v5 DocumentWe’re introducing a new process for your Mini Maker Faire submissions, one that will allow you to create, manage and refine your proposals.

If you need more info, keep reading below. Or Register Now to get started on your proposals!

If you’re new to responding to our Call for Makers and want more information, please visit http://makerfairenova/meetthemakers. You’ll see the kinds of projects we’re looking for along with other information about being a Maker at the Faire.

We want to encourage big ideas so we’re opening the Call for Makers early to allow time for creative thought and clever execution. Come, join the fun!

You have until Friday, Jan 23, 2015 to submit and refine your proposals.
Please see the Call for Maker Information page for details on the timeline.

Our vision for the Faire is to have a participatory celebration of Making. We’d like to keep the number of commercial makers around 20% of our total. If you would like to sell something at your table (be a commercial maker), the cost is $150. There is no cost for non-commercial makers.
