Makers Apply Here!

The Call for Makers is now open!

Thanks to the success of our inaugural event that attracted more than 35,000 attendees, Maker Faire Milwaukee is listed as the nation’s largest Featured Maker Faire. We need your help to make this year’s event even bigger and better!

Makers of all kinds and all ages – tech enthusiasts, artisans, crafters, hobbyists, homesteaders, scientists, garage tinkerers, and more – are encouraged to apply. Exhibit space for non-commercial makers who would like to demonstrate what they make and how it works to an appreciative audience is free. Individuals, groups, schools and organizations are encouraged to apply by completing an application by August 1st. Commercial makers, who would like to sell their products while demonstrating, are welcome to apply; there is a small fee for Commercial Maker booth space.
