Volunteer

Volunteers of all ages are welcome to join us as we make San Diego a better community. Kids do need to be accompanied by an adult. We strive to provide excellent learning and presentational opportunities to many local organizations and events.

The volunteer match group is ready to match a variety of talents and skills with new and existing opportunities.  Persons interested in volunteer opportunities with the San Diego Maker’s Guild  may contact the volunteer events teams.

 

North County Maker Faire 2017

The San Diego Makers Guild will be staging the North County Mini Maker Faire at the American Gas and Steam Engine Museum in Vista on June 17 and 18. North County Maker Faire will be within AGSEM’s Antique Engine & Tractor Show. They’ll have a tractor parade, demonstrations of milling and weaving and blacksmithing and more, wagon rides, food and fun galore.

Volunteer for a 4-hour shift (time and activity of your choosing, cleanup is only a 2 hour shift) at the Mini Maker Faire, and attend orientation prior to the event to get FREE admission to the event for yourself, plus FREE parking, FREE camping, FREE special tractor parade, and FREE ice cream social the Friday night before with a Battle Pond Night Battle where you can try your hand at piloting a ship (see below for details)! Share your love of making, help someone learn new skills, assist makers who are exhibiting, and generally help us make this a great Maker Faire experience for everyone!
