Why Volunteer at Maker Faire Burlington?

Attention: Call for Volunteers is closed. If you missed the deadline and feel called to help, please come visit us at the Maker’s Retreat area at the Faire! We especially need folks from 7am-10am on Saturday to help exhibitors get loaded out and set up. Thanks!


***Update: New deadline for volunteering is Saturday April 14 by midnight. Its not to late to be cool and sport a Make Noise t-shirt at the faire!***

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.

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).
