Maker Toolkit

Welcome Makers!

This is your resource center to guide you through the many details of exhibiting at Maker Faire Austin.

Please begin by reading our Maker Manual very carefully.  It should contain most if not all of the information you need to begin to prepare for a successful Faire experience.

The site layout for MFA 2016 can be seen here.  The key with the corresponding booth numbers can be seen here.  To find your spot, you will need to look up your booth number on the key, and then find your number on the layout.

We update the toolkit frequently. If you can’t find the information you need, please check back.
