To celebrate the New Year, we’ve gone live a day early with our Maker application!
So have at it! Get your Make on! Wow us with your incredible ingenuity and creativity!
Set our collective minds afire with your amazing DIY inventiveness, and let’s show the world how absolutely amazing Tampa Bay is – not just for our magnificent weather, views, and recreational opportunities – but for our unstoppable creative, entrepreneurial and inventive productivity, energy and intellect.
Exhibits that are interactive or highlight the process of making things are especially desired. Here’s the process…
The first step to participating in our Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about yourself and your project. Entries can be submitted by individuals or groups like hobbyist clubs and schools. You can apply as a Maker, Commercial Maker (individual makers primarily selling —$50 booth fee), Workshop or Presentation, or Performer. The application asks you to to provide a short description of what you make and what you will actually bring to Tampa Bay Mini Maker Faire. Photos, links and videos of exhibit ideas are very helpful. The more we can see and learn about your exhibit, the better your chances of getting Maker space at the Faire.
