Call for Makers

We’re looking for the people who will make the Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire the most exciting, wonderful, hands-on Faire yet! If you’re a maker, crafter, robot-lover, technologist, performer, mad hatter, tinkerer, or all of the above, apply today to strut your stuff and show off your skills!

Put together your best ideas and inclinations and fill out an application today!

Entries can be submitted from individuals as well as from groups such as hobbyist clubs and schools.  Please provide a short description of what you make and what you will actually bring to the Mini Maker Faire. If you have them, please link to photographs or videos of what you make. Exhibits should be demonstration based, and we discourage exhibits intended to exclusively market or sell items to visitors. We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making something, including demonstrations or kits visitors can complete on-site or at home.

  • Things Made From Recycled Items
