Calling ALL MAKERS:  NOW through August 1st.

Makers We are all     We want to encourage BIG ideas so we are opening our “Call For Makers” early to allow time for creative thought and cleaver execution.  Won’t you come and join in the fun?

The official start to our “CALL FOR MAKERS” is April 27, 2016 with the last date to apply August 1, 2016.  The button on the site IS live, but we wanted you to have time to look over the application process and the questions we are asking so when the “ALL CALL” goes out YOU’LL be ready.

The Ozarks Mini Maker Faire is a showcase of creativity and innovation throughout the entire Ozarks region with the vision to be an eclectic celebration of MAKING.  We expect individual and groups sharing, learning from each other, and pondering the infinite possibilities.  Participating will be preK-12th grades (public & private),  higher education, afterschool & informal groups (showcasing project based lessons) along with small and large business, industry, and manufacturing (what are they doing that’s cutting edge).  We’ve broken the groups into three proportionate categories: Fine Arts Makers, Industrial Makers, and Commercial Sponsors.  Showcasing the mindset of how we set the stage for making with our preschoolers through post graduate allowing us to have a strong highly skilled workforce to staff our business, industry, and manufacturing STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math) entities.


Maker: Individuals, groups, schools and organizations that would like to demonstrate what they make and/or how it works- interactive exhibits are encouraged. Young Makers (ages 18 and below) will need an adult parent/guardian present. There is a section on the form for their information. Parents/guardians must be listed as a Booth Assistant.

A traditional Maker is a hobby-ist, their projects are not a full-time job, a business or a main source of income. If your project is a full-time job, a business, or your main source of income, you will need to be considered as a start-up or established business.

Commercial Maker: Individuals who would like to sell or market products along with demonstrating what they make at their maker exhibit. COST: $100

Crafters: Both Commercial Makers and Craft vendors are a part of Maker Faire. The difference between the two is that Crafters are only selling their wares WITHOUT a hands-on demonstration of their project. Selling is a side-addition to Commercial Makers’ DIY demonstration; selling is not the focus of their exhibit.

Commercial Food Maker: Individuals pay a fee to show and demonstrate hand-made food products, in an interactive environment, with the opportunity to sell products. Samples 2 oz. or less can be given away with Springfield Business permit. Prepared packaged foods (defined as food that is not consumed on-site and is prepared prior to consumption), can be sold with SGF permit.

Non-Profit and Cause or Mission Based Association, Institution and Organization: In an effort to respond to requests from a variety of organizations that would like to participate in Maker Faire, we have created a special category where organizations can qualify for the reduced rate to participate in Maker Faire.

The cost for Makers will be $100 (extra for equipment/electricity)- IF you are selling at YOUR booth.  We will have LIMITED (40) “NO COST” booths for nonprofits and those projects that explore DIY (Do-It-Yourself) thinking, revealing their process or show how materials are pushed to their limits.

Commercial Business booths vary in price from $250-$10,000 depending of level of support.  Please contact for specifics.
