The 2016 San Antonio Mini Maker Faire Call for Makers is now open!

If you’re a local maker, apply to exhibit! The Faire will take place Saturday, March 26, at the Central Library downtown. We’re looking for all kinds of makers, including…

  • robotics teams
  • multimedia artists
  • Arduino aficionados
  • craftspeople
  • cosplayers
  • computer programmers
  • blacksmiths
  • engineers
  • fiber artists
  • inventors
  • automobile restorers
  • illusionists
  • bicycle modifiers

If you’re not on this list, please don’t hesitate to apply – we want to showcase all of San Antonio’s makers!

This year, we will be hosting two special sub-events within the Faire: a cosplay showcase and an exhibition of the creations of young makers. Cosplayers will display and explain their handmade or modified costumes and/or accessories. Young makers (18 and under) will show off or demonstrate their creations in short sessions.

We will also be accepting applications for commercial makers this year, but we will feature a very limited number of these.

If you have any questions, please ask! Email makerfairesa@gmail.com, find us on Facebook and Twitter, or comment on the blog and we’ll answer!
