Midnight, July 15 is the extended registration deadline for 2015 Maker Faire Call for Makers Registration. The 5th Maker Faire Fort Wayne – Powered by TekVenture is scheduled Saturday and Sunday, August 8 & 9, 2015, at Headwaters Park East – Lincoln Pavilion, Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Just a reminder we’re early this year so don’t forget to get registered. We’re looking forward to reviewing your application for this family friendly event to showcase your interesting projects.
It’s free to show off your work at Maker Faire and Commercial Makers can sell to the public for just $100. If your project isn’t finished, even better, bring it to the Faire and work on it there. We guarantee you’ll have learned something from someone and hopefully your project will be even better.
