Why volunteer for Maker Faire Milwaukee?


To learn, have FUN and keep Maker Faire Milwaukee free and open to everyone! Great volunteers are what make a stellar Maker Faire! They ensure all makers–whether visiting or exhibiting–are informed and engaged while they learn and discover new things. Volunteers can do anything from helping out on a race course to staffing information booths. Our form now allows for groups and families to sign-up at one time. If you are a student or employee of a company that requires community service hours, volunteering at Maker Faire Milwaukee can count towards your service.

Individual volunteers must be 16 or older and sign a liability release form. Those under 18 require a parent signature. Children younger than 16 can volunteer with a guardian or the entire family.
