Call for Makers is now officially open for Maker Faire Rochester 2019
This year’s events will be taking place on Friday, November 22 & Saturday, November 23, 2019 at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center, so save the date!
We continue to grow! Last year we had a record breaking year for us with 150+ makers and 5,000 people in attendance. This year we have even MORE room to grow and would like to hit 200+ Makers. Can you help us? We will also have a large stage, so if you know any performers, ask them to consider applying.
You can apply to be a Maker Friday for the Student STEAM Fest, Saturday for the Maker Faire, or for both days. As a heads up, we will be accepting makers for both days on a rolling basis, and the individual days in batches. This will hopefully make mapping easier so makers who attend both days don’t have to move their booths.
The Student STEAM Fest
will be a sneak preview for students in 3rd through 8th grade. The day will run from 9:00 am – 2:30 pm on Friday November 22nd. We do encourage makers to have hands-on activities or demos to show the attending students. To keep all activities accessible to all students, we will not be allowing any sales on this day. However, commercial makers that attend the Friday Student STEAM Fest to provide demonstrations and/or free hands-on activities for students will be eligible for a discount on Saturday’s Commercial Maker fee. Please
consider helping us inspire children to become future makers. Apply today for BOTH
We hope to have load-in for the Student STEAM day take place on Thursday night and Friday morning (we’re still working out the final details). Load in for Saturday should be the same as previous years.
