Call For Makers: Exhibit at the Bay Area Maker Faire 2016

Maker Faire 2015 10th Anniversary from David C. Hill on Vimeo.

The Bay Area Maker Faire call for makers is now officially live! We’re only halfway into the first month of 2016 and things are already beginning to pick up some momentum. The event is only a few months away, so if you want to show off your creations, you’re going to have to act fast and sign up!

The Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo at the end of May is our biggest Maker Faire, and often the most wildly amazing. There are giant flaming sculptures next to bicycle powered amusement rides. Knitting next to robots and movie props. Educational seminars, activities, and more food than you can imagine.



We need to hear from Exhibitors, Performers, Presenters, Startups, and if you want to sponsor something, there’s a spot for that too. You can find all the specifics on how to apply on our official call for makers page.
Here are just some of the topics that we’re looking for:

    • Student projects
    • Robotics
    • Homegrown Drones
    • Arduino projects
    • Raspberry Pi
    • Space projects
    • Food makers (not concessionaires, more info below)
