Want a FREE ticket to Maker Faire Detroit? Volunteer!

As the Midwest’s largest DIY festival, the two-day, family-friendly Maker Faire Detroit has something for everyone – a showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness and a celebration of the Maker mindset.

And we’ll let you in on a little secret…there’s a way to attend this fantastic event, absolutely free – by volunteering!

There are lots of great reasons to volunteer at Maker Faire Detroit, but perhaps the best reason is that volunteers have a fabulous time!  Here are some of the comments from our volunteers from the past two Faires:

 “Everyone that I worked with was interesting.”

 “I loved working the Faire and meeting the maker/crafters.”

 “I had a great time.”

 “I enjoyed this unique volunteer event and look forward to next year.”

 “I was one of this year’s Maker Faire volunteers.  I was only able to work one shift, but I had so much fun.  The Faire itself was nothing short of amazing!”

Other great reasons to volunteer for Maker Faire Detroit 2012 include:

  • Choose the time and the position you fill while volunteering.
  • Receive a FREE exclusive Maker Faire Detroit crew T-shirt to wear during your shift.
  • Receive a FREE one-day ticket to Maker Faire for each 4-5 hour shift you work (a $27 value).
  • Be part of inspiring thousands of guests!
