World Maker Faire in New York is only weeks away! It won’t be possible without the help of our “Street Team” spreading the excitement. The Maker Faire Street Team passes out fliers, stickers, and business cards to expose new people to the Maker Faire. It is easy, fun, and can earn you two adult tickets to the event (a $90 value!)

If you want to get involved, you’re going to have to act quickly, the street team application period ends August 17.

Signing up is easy :

  1. Fill out this form and we will send you a Maker Faire New York 2017 Street Team Kit.
  2. Take your goodies and post them in high traffic venues. Please be sure to ask for permission when appropriate, as we definitely want to respect other’s property.
  3. Snap some photos in ALL of the places you decide to post. You need a minimum of 10 different pictures from 10 different locations.
  4. Once you’ve documented your Street Team journey, share with your social community (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) use #MFNY17 and #makerfaire.
