Join The Maker Faire Street Team, Earn 2 Tickets to MFBA!


This year marks 10 years of the Bay Area Maker Faire. It wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our community spreading the excitement. For our 10th year anniversary, we’re hoping to be bigger than ever before and again, we need your help! 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 2 adult tickets to the event (a $90 value!)

Signing up is easy (complete instructions  here):

1. Fill out this form and we will send you a Maker Faire Bay Area 2015 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 5 different pictures from 5 different locations.

4.Once you’ve documented your Street Team journey, share with your social community (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).

5. After sharing with your social communities, to qualify, you have to come back and show us everything! The deadline is May 1, 2015

Senior Editor for Make: I get ridiculously excited seeing people make things. I just want to revel in the creativity of the masses! My favorite thing in the world is sharing the hard work of a maker.

I'd always love to hear about what you're making, so send me an email any time at
