Volunteering

dscf0443Maker Faire NoVa is organized and produced by an all volunteer team and sponsored by Reston’s own maker space, NOVA Labs (501c3). The faire is a lot of work but we love what we do! Come join us to help. dscf0534We need hundreds of volunteers to help run the faire including set-up the day before all the way through tear-down after the faire ends.

Volunteering is a great way to enjoy the Faire!  And we will ensure you get your service hours. You’ll get a few perks too, including a free Maker Faire NoVa T-Shirt, on-site parking, and access to the Faire before and after public hours. It’s  a wonderful chance to meet the awesome Makers, socialize and make a difference!
