Calling All Makers!

**Deadline extended!  New deadline May 13, 2018**

The Alameda Mini Maker Faire is an all-ages event that brings together science, art, craft, homesteading and engineering plus music, food, and performance.

We are looking for 50+ makers to showcase their work, including DIY enthusiasts, businesses, artists, and crafters. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience interactive exhibits, meet like-minded individuals, and be inspired by the creativity and innovation of the maker community in Alameda and beyond.

Exhibits that are interactive or highlight the process of making things are especially desired.  


The first step to participating in the Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about yourself and your project. Entries can be submitted from individualsgroups such as hobbyist clubs and schools; commercial makers or crafters; startups; and companies.

Note there is no fee to participate in the Maker Faire if you are not selling a product.  If you are a “commercial maker” and want to sell, booth fees are $50. 

Maker Exhibit: Our standard setup for a Maker exhibit is a 8’x10′ space. Use your space to display your work and/or demonstrate how you make something. If you need more space for your exhibit or project, you can let us know in the Call for Makers form.

Performances: We are programming one stage with a mix of music and non-musical performances. We also encourage pop-up performance happenings.
