Boston Mini Maker Faire Application Tips:

  • Read EVERYTHING! We know it can be tempting to skip a line or two to get right into the application, BUT all the information is extremely important to know, so please, read everything!  Please be as descriptive as possible about your project and fill in as much detail as possible, as the application cannot be changed after it’s submitted.
  • You will have the option of saving and returning to the application if you can’t complete it all in one sitting. Yay! Take your time, and enjoy it.
  • Spell check everything! Especially your e-mail address – e-mail will be our primary source of communication. If your e-mail address is spelled incorrectly, or has an extra space, you could miss your opportunity to show off at the Faire!
  • Prepare good photos or video content to provide with your application. These will populate the new and improved Boston Mini Maker Faire website if you are accepted!
  • The deadline for submission is Friday, August 3rd.   Following this deadline, we will review all submissions and contact makers 1-2 weeks later.
  • Ask questions; if you are unsure about something, contact us at contact@makerfaireboston.com. The Team will be happy to assist you.
