Traveler Entry Pass for Maker Faire Bay Area 2018

May 17 @ 10:00 am - May 20 @ 7:00 pm

Welcome to the Maker Traveler sign up page for Bay Area 2018! 


We are excited to have you participate at this year’s Maker Faire Bay Area, May 18 – 20 at the San Mateo County Event Center.


 We have a great program for people that would like to make an invaluable contribution to the success of Maker Faire. We provide a platform to enhance your skills and learn about the Maker Movement. Get behind-the-scenes experience, and help make the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth happen!


 YOU CREATE YOUR SCHEDULE


We are using Eventbrite to manage the scheduling and Entry Passes for our Maker Travelers.  You are able to select 1 Entry Pass for each of the available shifts from Thursday through Sunday.  Once you select this Entry Pass we will expect to see you for that shift.  Once you have signed up for your shifts, you will receive regular weekly emails with any important updates and once you arrive onsite, you will receive your actual assignment.


You can sign up for as many shifts as you like and if you create an Eventbrite account, you can even make changes to your schedule if required.
