There are limited dorm/hostel rooms available at State Fair Park for about $100/room/night and they sleep 6 people (you have to arrange the group yourself as SFP only rents the rooms as a unit.) Requests for booking the dorms must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept 1st, 2016. Sites like couchsurfing.com and airbnb may also have rooms available that are near State Fair Park.

There are about 70 full service sites, 30 additional electric only sites, and more dry sites at the State Fair Grounds. Maker Faire will not be a “Special Event” for pricing purposes (lower prices.)
