Maker Faire’s mission is to create an environment of hands-on sharing and discovery, and to inspire more people to make things!
Makers participating purely by sharing their project and inspiring others to make are not asked to pay an exhibit fee. Maker Faire provides these Makers with exhibit space and any required tables, chairs, power, etc., at no cost to the Maker.
Maker Faire aims to create a fun, engaging, and inspiring event. We ask that the focus of all exhibits is on the DIY nature and show & tell, NOT focused on branding or marketing a product or service.
An exhibit fee may apply to Makers or organizations with marketing or sales intentions, such as the following:
Pueblo Mini Maker Faire exhibit fees range from $25 to $300 and are based on the exhibitor’s marketing intentions and size of their organization. Marketing must follow our guidelines and branding is reserved for paying exhibitors. Please be advised that signage and branding that exceed our guidelines may be asked to be removed when onsite. Instructional signage is fine and encouraged, signage aimed at promoting a brand or Logo need to fall within the limitations stated below.
