We are holding the 2019 Twin Tiers Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, April 27th from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM at Corning Community College in Corning, New York. We are proud to announce that Chemung County Library District, Corning Community College, and Southeast Steuben County Library have partnered to bring you this event.
Apply today for a FREE maker booth at our Faire where you can showcase your skills by providing a hands-on activity for attendees, demonstrating a craft, performing in our stage area, or leading a workshop. If you are interested in selling your items, see below for details and fees. We have a limited amount of spaces that we can provide electricity to; it will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis so apply early if you need it for your activity.
Would you like to sell your items at the Faire?
This year we are allowing makers to request approval for a vendor booth where personally crafted items can be sold. If you would like to sell your items at the Faire, you will need to provide either a free hands-on activity for attendees or a teaching demonstration at your booth.
When you submit your application, be sure to check the box indicating that you would like to sell items. Only items that you have personally created may be sold at the event. Vendors will also be required to pay a either a $25 fee (if providing a hands-on activity) or a $50 fee (if providing a demonstration). Once the committee has reviewed your application, if approved, you will be notified and asked to pay the non-refundable vendor fee.
Hands-on Activites: How many should you plan for?
If you plan to provide a make-and-take or hands-on activity at the Maker Faire, it is a good idea to have a backup plan for when you run out of materials (a demonstration or show-and-tell). Based on activities from our last two Maker Faires we recommend having enough materials for 100-200 make-and-takes (if you do not want to run out before the end of the event). Depending on how long your activity takes to complete and how many participants you can accommodate at once, the actual number will vary.
