Whether you work with tech, crafts, cars, robots, sculpture, robots, mad science, or something in between, we want to show it off at the 2017 Seattle Mini Maker Faire!
We’re seeking makers of all ages including individuals, hobbyist groups, schools, non-profit organizations, and commercial businesses. Exhibits that are interactive or highlight the process of making things are especially desired.
As you prepare to apply for the Call for Makers, here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:
See you at the Seattle Mini Maker Faire September 16-17 at MoPOP.
Application Deadline: June 26, 2017
The first step to participating in the Maker Faire is to submit an application telling us about your project. Individuals, groups (such as hobbyist clubs and schools), commercial makers or crafters, startups, and companies are all welcome to apply.
Note: there is no fee to participate in the Maker Faire if you are not selling or promoting a product. Booth fees are $200 for commercial makers selling at the event. Startups and companies can participate at varying pricing levels. Please check out our Become a Sponsor page for more information.
Here are just a few of the things we’re looking for:
Our standard setup for a Maker exhibit is a 10’ x 10′ outdoor space or an 8′ x 8′ indoor space. If you need more space for your exhibit or project, please let us know. Use this space to display your work and/or demonstrate how you make something.
Performances, presentations, or workshops receive 10, 20, and 30 minute time slots. These can be demos, stories, how-tos, and group (panel) conversations. Any maker-spirited entertainers may apply to perform at Seattle Mini Maker Faire.
