Why Volunteer at Maker Faire Burlington?

Volunteering is a great way to enjoy the Faire!  Fantastic volunteers like you ensure all makers – whether visiting or exhibiting – are informed and engaged while they learn and discover new things. You’ll get a few perks too, including a free Maker Faire Burlington T-Shirt and access to the Faire before and after public hours. It’s  a wonderful chance to meet the awesome Makers, socialize and make a difference! And you will get your service hours if needed.

Maker Faire Burlington is organized and produced by an all volunteer team and sponsored by Alamance Makers Guild (501c3). We need many volunteers to help run the faire including set-up the day before all the way through tear-down after the faire ends.

If you have any questions, please email us at info@alamancemakers.org

Volunteer Age Requirements

Students 11- 15 may volunteer and it will be required that a parent or responsible party complete a volunteer waiver. An exception could be if you are with an organized group such as a school, Scouts, etc. that has their own waivers. Volunteers 16 and up may sign up on their own (but it’s always more fun with a friend).

Maker Faire Burlington is April 28, 2018, from 10am–5pm. We need volunteers beginning at 7am to help set up and load in exhibitors. We hope you are able to join us! All volunteers must fill out the Call For Volunteers form by Thursday, April 12, 2018 to ensure we order your correct T-Shirt size.
