Become a Sponsor Today!

 

2018 will be the fifth year of Maker Faire Rochester, held Saturday, November 16th & 17th at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center.

 

It has become an annual festival to make, create, learn, invent, craft, hack, recycle, build, think, play, and be inspired by science, technology, engineering, arts and crafts.

 

We are seeking sponsors to help continue to grow this DIY extravaganza in our community. Over one hundred Makers and thousands of attendees of all ages will participate in exciting exhibitions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities while enjoying interesting presentations/speakers, food creations, live music, and visual and performing arts.

 

Maker Faire Rochester is a leader in New York’s Maker Movement. Sponsors reach thousands of people and are associated with a diverse and engaged audience including maker newsletters, communications, school maker networks, a state wide maker summit, hands-on activities at festivals around the region, and other activities that support the New York Maker Movement.
