The 8th Annual Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire returns to Schurz High School on Saturday, May 4, 2019!  For those of you who are new to Maker Faire, it is the largest celebration of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) in the world.  Maker Faire is a venue for inventors, technophiles, artists, crafters, mad scientists, hackers, musicians, and anyone who makes cool things and want to show others how it’s done.  Our Faire is one of the most diverse in the world, and focused on teaching and learning for all ages. We invite all ages and interests to participate!  If you have an awesome project to showcase, share it here:


We will be accepting applications until April 8th. There is no cost to makers to present and it’s FREE for your friends to attend!  Select makers will also be featured on our website and advertisements. (The earlier you apply, the more likely we will feature your project)
