The deadline to submit for the Atlanta and Nashville Maker faires is approaching quickly. How long do you have? Let’s just say the sooner you submit, the more likely you’ll be accepted. If I were you, I wouldn’t wait any longer than a week.

Both faires are looking for makers with their own creations, as well as workshop teachers, speakers, performers, vendors, and sponsors.

The second annual Nashville Mini Maker Faire takes place Saturday, September 13th, 2014 at the Adventure Science Center. Apply here. If you want to know what you’re getting into, watch this video I made of last year’s faire.

The Atlanta Maker Faire has been going strong for four or so years, however, this is the first year it gets the distinction of being a “Featured” faire. That’s a pretty big deal, since there are only a handful of featured faires. Trust me, it’ll be huge. It takes place over the weekend of October 4th and 5th. Apply here.

I’m organizing some circuit bending stuff for both faires, and I’m also helping run a Make Nashville booth. If you’re interested in showing off circuit bent gear or exhibiting under the Make Nashville space, please drop me an e-mail at tony@theatreintangible.com.
