Makers enjoy talking and sharing their knowledge with others.
In order to better facilitate this exchange of ideas,
we’re changing the Faire a little this year.

On October 21 (in conjunction with Maker Faire Atlanta), Southeast Makers Alliance will hold a Conference that will feature different sessions focused on Startups/Inventors, Community Maker Spaces and Hobbyists.  The conference will also feature the second annual MakEdu Conference for Educators.  There is sure to be something for everyone!

On Sunday October 22 we will host Maker Faire Atlanta in a new location (after many great years in the great town of Decatur).  We are so excited to be moving to Downtown Atlanta.  This year’s venue is the historic Georgia Freight Depot – nestled between Underground Atlanta and the State Capitol Building.

Fee Schedule – Maker Faire Exhibitors:

There is no fee for Non-Commercial Makers as long as there are no items being sold or promoted (show and tell only). Youth Makers and Non-Profits are also free.
