Call for Makers

This call for makers is for the 2023 Hudson Valley Maker Faire.

Hudson Valley Maker Faire will showcase stunning work by makers of all ages from near and far.

We encourage all makers, from artists to innovators, tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, authors, students and other creatives to apply.  We particularly love exhibits that are hands-on, hi-tech and show the creative process.

We expect to see: immersive art, installations robots, VR, electronics, textiles, fashion, performances, music, films, rockets, food, 3D printers, green technology, tools, unusual machines, glass, toys, and more. Can you dazzle us with your work??
