Show your stuff and share your passion for making.

What projects are you looking for? What is required of a Maker?
A do-it-yourself project that is unique, inspiring, engaging, and interactive with observers. It tells a story. It might be a piece of art, a tool, or a project that does something different. It should be something that hasn’t been seen before, or at least by few people, and it should not be for commercial purposes.The Maker needs to be there to demo and explain. It’s okay to take commercial things and do a “mash-up” that repurposes in unique and “ah hah” ways, like an underwater bicycle.

Who can apply for a booth?
Local, regional, and national groups, clubs, individuals, schools, libraries, universities, and hobbyists who can demonstrate or actually show the making of their invention/craft/project in a contained setting or workshop.

What does it cost?
Applicants who are chosen by a review panel to participate receive a 10’x10’ area at no charge (FREE). A table and two chairs are provided.  Applicants who wish to sell their inventions/crafts/artwork may be asked to pay a fee for their booth space (see application for sales level/details). The event is free to attendees.
