Makers who sell (Maker Vendors or Artisan/Crafter/Small business), who wish to sell items or materials at the Faire will need to pay a modest seller’s fee of $100 in advance of the event as well as 5% percent of total sales when sales reach $500.

Companies or Commercial Size Business who wish to promote their business is $250 for a 10×10 booth. Larges spaces for showing are negotiable.

Requirements for Selling

Any Maker, Vendors or company who wish to sell, are required to obtain a seller’s permit from the City of Albuquerque. The cost is around $35. We can assist you with details about obtaining a permit; you may also contact the City at or visit the City of Albuquerque web page directly. The city will start to issue permits in late March.  The turn around for a permit is normally less than 5 business days.


The first step to participating in this Mini Maker Faire is to submit an entry that tells us about yourself and your project. Entries can be submitted from individuals as well as from groups such as hobbyist clubs and schools. Please provide a short description of what you make and what you will actually bring to the Mini Maker Faire. Please link to photographs or videos of what you make. Maker exhibits should be non-commercial. We particularly encourage exhibits that are interactive and that highlight the process of making things. *Note: Makers whose entries are accepted will receive free registration to Mini Maker Faire. However, we cannot pay for transportation, accommodations, or other costs.
