We attract a diverse audience of attendees from all over the state and this is made possible by you! Maker exhibitors like you show off inspirational projects, skills, inventions, art, and maker businesses. Maker Faire is YOUR platform to inspire, educate, and entertain others. We are excited that you want to share and inspire at Maker Faire Burlington!
What kind of exhibit should I have? The best exhibits are those that are interactive where the visiting public can get their hands dirty making something or doing something. Next best are those exhibits that demonstrate or teach something. We also accept static exhibits that are informational or inspirational. Individuals, groups, makerspaces, schools, universities, libraries, or small maker businesses may apply for space to show off what they do.
Age requirements? We accept makers of any age, although we expect any maker exhibitors under the age of 18 to have permission from an adult, and the support and help of a responsible adult during the event.
