Calling all Makers, Educators, Builders!

Solano County Fair has always been a place for discovery and entertainment and we are glad to have been invited to move our Mini Maker Faire to the fairgrounds this year. Tens of thousands of people will attend over the course of the weekend and we want them to see and learn from the things you create and are passionate about. Find out more about what is different this year here.

What are we looking for? Pretty much whatever you make or do that you’re passionate about, as long as it’s something you can share with others. Maker Faire features a huge range of things: robots and electronics projects, environmental sustainable projects, kooky inventions, poetry writing, screen printing, and hacks of all kind… Anything Do-It-Yourself, and especially anything Do-It-Together. There is no cost for non-commercial exhibitors.

Your Mini Maker Faire submission can be a display of something you’ve done, an activity or workshop you offer, a performance, or for a space to sell your finished work. The goal is to encourage others and have some fun. This event can’t happen without you, so take the leap, set yourself a deadline, and apply today!

    Can you give me vendor pricing for the Solano Mini Makers event? I sell Princess products for girls, Tutus Tiaras and Halos

      If you make the items yourself, the cost is $100. Otherwise, the cost is $200 for commercial booths. Those details are also found in the application and may vary from year to year.
