Calling all Maker Faire Street Teams

Calling all Maker Faire Street Teams

Our Maker Faire team is feverishly burning the midnight veggie oil to get this year’s Maker Faire Bay Area (May 19 & 20) up and running, and they need YOUR help. They’re looking for folks to join the Maker Faire Bay Area Street Team. This is your chance to get involved with the Faire, help us spread the word, and snag two adult day passes to the Faire in the process! They sent me this note to pass along to you.

To join the team, send an email to with your name and snail mail address. We’ll send you a Maker Faire Street Team Kit which includes:

  • 25 Fliers
  • 75 Postcards
  • 10 Business Cards (both our Bay Area and New York Dates are listed!)
  • 5 Buttons

Please do your best to post the Maker Faire materials in high traffic venues (and please be sure to ask for permission when appropriate, as we definitely want to respect others property.)

Here are some great places to post flyers and place postcards:

Bookstores Coffee shops
Cafes Toy Stores
Hobby Shops Craft Stores
Restaurants Scrap Stores
Community Centers Hacker Spaces
Tech Shops After School Programs
Garden Centers Thrift Stores
Schools Churches
and more…..

When you have completed your Street Team Marketing efforts, please email us:

1)   Three pictures of locations where you placed Maker Faire flyers and/or postcards (email to: )
2) Let us know where you posted the materials (city/store/school/café/etc.)
And, please send us all the above information by Wednesday, May 2nd so we can get your tickets in the mail in time for the event!

Thanks in advance for your help and support, and see you at Maker Faire!
