Community Forklift is helping to sponsor the 1st Annual Silver Spring Maker Faire! MAKE SOMETHING AMAZING & CHECK OUT INVENTIONS OF ALL KINDS!
At Veterans Plaza and
The Silver Spring Civic Building
(Corner of Fenton and Ellsworth)
This family-friendly event showcases the amazing work of all kinds of makers across the greater DC area and beyond—anyone who is embracing the DIY or DIT (do-it-together!) spirit and wants to share their accomplishments with an appreciative audience. We are especially interested in exhibits that are interactive or highlight the process of making things.
The first step to participate in the Silver Spring Mini Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about your project. Entries can be submitted from individuals as well as from groups such as hobbyist clubs and schools. You can apply as a Maker, Commercial Maker (individual makers primarily selling their creations—$200 booth fee), Workshop leader, Presenter, or Performer. (Food vendors and business sponsors – please write email@example.com for more information.) We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and highlight the process of making things.
Filters and criteria for selection may include:

OTHER WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
Performers and Presenters: We want YOU to present or perform at the Silver Spring Mini Maker Faire. We are looking for stage programs that will engage makers and visitors of all ages and backgrounds. Stage Programs should be 10 – 30 minutes in length. To ensure that all stage programs are appropriate and engaging for our audience, all stage program submissions will be reviewed by our volunteer team. We will e-mail all applicants by August 7 to let you know if we will be able to include you in this year’s Faire.
