Join the World Maker Faire NY Street Team!

Here’s a great opportunity for free Maker Faire tickets, help us spread the word!

Post flyers and place postcards in your local community (suggested locations listed below) and earn two Adult Maker Faire day passes worth $50.

It’s easy. We will send you a packet of 25 flyers and 200 postcards and you go to all the places you already go (maybe a few more) and pin or tape a flyer on a bulletin board or in a window and a small stack of postcards on the front counter. Of course you will need to ask permission first! Then in a few of the places snap a picture for us and when your done send us a few so we can see the great work you have done.

When your done let us know and we will send you two Adult tickets to World Maker Faire. You won’t have to wait in line for your tickets, save a little cash and you will have helped us spread the word about this great event within your community.
