Got a DIY project you want to show off to a couple thousand people? Then it’s time to register for this year’s Champlain Mini Maker Faire. The organizers of this annual fall event are now accepting applications for exhibitors, presenters and workshops. The 2014 maker showcase will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 4 and 5, at Shelburne Farms. From the press release:

“Maker Faire showcases all that is creative and innovative in our community,” says Executive Event Producer Doug Webster. “Whether it’s a home-built robot, a video game, a miniature race car, a novel, a hand-made musical instrument, or a sustainable micro garden, we need you and your creative, innovative projects!”

Applicants should include local, regional, and national, groups, clubs, individuals, schools, and hobbyists who can demonstrate or actually show the making of their invention/craft/project in a contained booth setting.

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, a Maker Faire gives the public the opportunity to interact with local Makers and to make, craft, learn and be inspired while celebrating arts, engineering, science and technology.

The Call for Makers is open until August 10, 2014. For more information, visit
