Maker Faire is a three-day, family-friendly event that celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for creative, resourceful people of all ages and backgrounds who like to tinker and love to make things. San Francisco Bazaar has produced a marketplace for Maker Faire Bay Area since its inception in 2006. We’re happy to be back in 2019 hosting 50 talented makers in our curated marketplace.

We encourage modern makers of all kinds to apply, but our FOCUS is on artisans who sell finished products or supplies. 


+ A $10 non-refundable Jury Fee is required per SF Bazaar show application
+ Number of San Francisco Bazaar booths: 50
+ Attendance For Fair: 120,000 (anticipated 30K to SF Bazaar Market).
+ Venue is outdoors under tents.
+ Only one booth space is allowed per applicant.
+ Sharing is allowed up to TWO ARTISTS or one collective for 10×10 spaces ONLY.

SF Bazaar will also be hosting a Maker Demonstration stage in our marketplace. Proposals will be accepted as part of your application. Maker Faire will publish your demo/workshop as part of their regular programming. While not required, it is considered a part of the Maker experience and an effective way to gather interest in your product and brand. Applicants are encouraged to include a proposal for a workshop and/or demonstration!
