Thank you for your interest in volunteering to support the first-ever Boulder Mini Maker Faire! This is going to be a fantastic event and your help is greatly appreciated (and needed!) to make it even better. It’s also a heck of a lot of fun to get involved — so we can’t wait to see you there!
In general we will need some help in the run up to the show with several aspects of the event. Then the biggest help will be needed during the show. And don’t forget: you get a super cool T-Shirt, food and drinks during your shift, and one General Admission ticket for each 4-hour shift. We can’t wait to get together and get our MAKE on!
So straight to the details. We’ll need help with the following:
Event set-up all-day Friday and Saturday mornings:
Volunteer staff support (including food and drinks)
Maker way-finding during check-in/move-in
Box office support including admissions, wristbands and waiver release signing
Event ambassadors to help attendees find their way
Security inside and outside the event (including overnight shifts)
Maker support throughout the event with facilities and operations
Announcers for speaker and demonstrations stages
Strike-down and move out
Clean-up (which always seems to get the least volunteer sign up but is VERY important!)
And more cool opportunities to actually MAKE the experience by helping Makers in their booths!!
The shift schedule will be in 4-hour intervals (up to 8-hours max per day) and will range over a period from 7am-10pm depending on the day. We will have some lead-up events that you may want to participate in, including driving to pick up food donations and other supplies.
Please provide some basic information to help us start to place you around the event. Just email the following information to Jeff@MakerBoulder.com. If you need more info, the email’s a great way to go, or you can feel free to call Jeff Scott, our supreme deity of Operations and Volunteer Coordination, at 303.859.2177.
