This free, family-friendly celebration of invention and creativity is open to people of all ages who are interested in creating, making, building, innovating, tinkering, hacking, engineering, designing, or connecting.

Individuals, groups, schools, clubs, libraries, and others are all eligible to be makers. Applicants who are chosen by a review panel to participate receive a display area at no charge.

Those interested in showcasing their products and innovations can apply to be a maker on the Maker Faire website. The deadline to apply is Sept. 24.

Applicants who wish to sell their inventions/crafts/artwork may be asked to pay a fee for their booth space.
