Countdown to the Call for Makers for World Maker Faire New York


The final weekend of September will host the 6th annual World Maker Faire New York in Queens, NYC. That’s around 80-odd days from now. But Makers interested in participating will first have to apply to exhibit at the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth, and the dates to do that are much, much sooner.

We’ve learned over the years to be flexible with how Makers procrastinate when it comes to applications and deadlines, and have implemented rolling deadlines in three rounds.

The first round for the Call for Makers for World Maker Faire New York closes on Sunday, July 12 at 11:59pm PST. That’s less than 10 days from now. First round applicants will be reviewed first and receive elevated priority when it comes to accepting their application. It should be noted this process is key for New York as space is limited. The sooner you apply, the better your chances of being accepted.

The second round for applications closes one week later, on Sunday, July 19 at 11:59pm PST.

Applications received after the first two rounds will be reviewed based on available space.

Makers will be notified of their acceptance on or before July 30.

It’s that simple. And with our new application process you can easily start your application now to figure out what assets (images, video, description text, etc.) you might need to complete it, and give yourself a deadline by which to press “submit”. If you start, but don’t finish the application, you’ll be given a “token” URL to come back to at any time to complete your entry form. If you experience problems with the form or have any questions, you can email

So what are you waiting for? Head over to the Call for Makers for World Maker Faire New York and enter your project today!

We can’t wait to see what you have in mind to inspire the next generation of Makers.
