Call for Makers 2020

The 9th Annual Chicago Northside Maker Fest returns to Schurz High School on Saturday, May 2, 2020!  Maker Fest is still the largest celebration of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) in Chicago!  We welcome inventors, artists, crafters, mad scientists, hackers, musicians, anyone who makes cool things and wants to show others how it’s done.  Maker Fest celebrates diversity, teaching, and learning for all ages. We invite folks of all backgrounds, ages, and interests to participate!  If you have an awesome project to share:

We will be accepting applications until March 30th. There is no cost for makers to present and it’s FREE for your friends to attend!  Select makers will also be featured on our website and advertisements. (The earlier you apply, the more likely we will feature your project)
