Thinking about volunteering for Maker Faire? We hope you will join us.

The Faire is only made possible with the help of volunteers. We love our volunteers, which is why our volunteers get free PERKS for helping us put on the greatest show and tell on Earth!

The Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum has offered volunteers a bunch of great perks for volunteering for a 4-hour shift (Teardown/cleanup 2 hour shift counts as 4!):


    • Free admission both days
    • Free parking (with the Pass in your Volunteer handbook)
    • Free Ice Cream Social on Friday night (after initial setup)
    • Free Tractor parade on Saturday night after the Faire closes for the day
    • Free Tent and Dry Camping on the grounds both Friday and Saturday nights
