Applications and information on signing up for a booth are available at batonrouge.makerfaire.com/call-for-makers, on Twitter @BRMakerFaire or on Facebook at facebook.com/brmakerfaire. Deadline to apply is Sept. 21. Slots are available for all makers, anyone with do-it-yourself or do-it-together projects, especially with projects that are interactive or highlight the process of making things.
The Mini Maker Faire celebrates creative hobbies, projects and crafts, with this year’s focus on Louisiana food culture and cooking.
