The Denver Mini Maker Faire team is looking for a wide variety of eclectic, diverse and out-of-the-box ideas that highlight the tinkerer spirit. The Call for Makers is open from now through March 30. After this date we will accept projects only on a space available basis up through May 1. Last year our maker spaces filled up early – don’t wait to let us know you are interested.

MAKER FEES

The Colorado Maker Hub is a non-profit organization. While we provide space free for non-commercial maker projects, we collect booth fees from makers that are promoting or selling to cover our costs for producing the event – tables, chairs, barricades, other fencing, marketing, printing, electricity, volunteer needs, food, cleaning, trash, and on and on. You’d be surprised what’s involved! We were! As a result, below is our fee structure so we can bring together 100+ of you for 2 days of networking and sharing what you do to thousands of attendees. Thank you so much for joining us!

One response to “Makers

  1. Hi. On March 3, I submitted a project application for Crossbeams. In it, I specified I needed electrical power and WiFi. Those are no longer necessary. They were needed to process credit cards, but I will now do that via a cell phone. Thanks.
