Bring Your Creations to Maker Faire!

Maker Faire is inclusive of anyone who embraces the do-it-yourself (or do-it-together) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. Makers apply to show and share as an exhibitor (regular, young maker or startup), presenter, workshop provider or performer. Topics range across engineering, science, art, food, design and craft—and most anywhere in between! Learn more in more detail about this year’s emphasis and categories we are looking for below.

What’s New

 

Maker Faire Bay Area 2019 offers expanded opportunities to provide scheduled and drop-in workshops, and more young maker opportunities. Proposals for large scale, immersive experiences are welcome — including for our Dark Room.

The latest in robotics, electronics and digital fabrication are core to Maker Faire. Growing categories include architecture and design, woodworking, mixed reality, AI, and cosplay. We are also particularly interested in projects and startups focused explicitly on climate protection.

As always, we encourage applications that are interactive and highlight the process of making things.

Here are just some of the specific topics that we’re looking for:
  • Robotics
  • Electronics
  • Design and Fabrication (both digital and analog)
  • Shelters (tiny homes, tents, domes, etc.)
  • Cosplay and Costumes
  • Virtual and Augmented Reality
  • Sustainability & Green Tech
  • Innovations pertaining to Climate Protection
  • Woodworking
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Mixed and Augmented Reality
  • Food Makers (not concessionaires, more info below)
  • Homegrown Drones
  • Science, Biology/Biotech, and Chemistry Projects
  • Interactive, Kinetic Art Projects (tabletop to large-scale)
  • Craft (all kinds)
  • E-Textiles and Wearables
  • Radios, Vintage Computers and Game Systems
  • Puppets, Kites, Toys and Other Whimsical Creations
  • Music Performances and Participation
  • Unusual Tools or Machines
  • How to Fix Things or Take them Apart (vacuums, clocks, washing machines, etc.)
