Call To Makers

Thanks to all the makers who have submitted their applications so far. We have gotten a lot of cool stuff and several large items – so space is filling quickly. We are extending the deadline to June 8th. After the cut off we will accept on a case by case basis as space allows. If you have any questions about participating at Maker Faire Detroit, please email the team at makerfairedetroit@thehenryford.org.

  • Please be sure to add MakerFaireDetroit@TheHenryFord.org to your email contacts list so our messages don’t end up in your spam box.

  • There is a two-step process to the application if you did not apply in 2013 or 2104. You will need to create an account for yourself and log in BEFORE you can access the application. If you have applied in the past two years, you can log in and go directly to the application.
