Call For Makers - 2015 Nashville Mini Maker Faire
Thank you for your interest in participating as an exhibitor at the 2015 Nashville Mini Maker Maker Faire. The deadline for applications is August 26, 2015. After you submit, your Call for Makers application will be reviewed and we will notify you with confirmation about event participation at a later date. The Nashvile Mini Maker Faire event date is September 12, 2015.

You could win $1000 just for exhibiting at the Nashville mini Maker Faire!

This year’s “Best in Show” maker-exhibitor will receive a $1,000 prize*, courtesy of our friends at Lightning 100! A panel of judges selected by the Nashville Mini Maker Faire committee will circulate through the booths during the event to determine who has the most original, thought-provoking, crowd-attracting, awe-inspiring exhibit at the Faire! The winner will be announced no later than 5 p.m. on Sept. 12. Must be present to win.

*Winner will receive $500 on the day of the event, and receive an additional $500 “grant” to return to the Nashville Mini Maker Faire in 2016 to showcase another exhibit that “wows” the crowd.
