Volunteer at Maker Faire (before, during, or after!)

Did you know you can get into the Maker Faire for free if you’re willing to volunteer four hours of your time? And, it doesn’t have to be during the Faire itself.

You can imagine how much work is involved in setting up and talking down an event of this size. We need folks in the days leading up to and the days following, to help with set-up and breakdown. We know that times are tough for many, but we don’t want anyone to miss out on the fun who wants to attend. So, if you’ve got four hours you can spare, check out our volunteer program page, or email volunteers@makerfaire.com.
