We welcome teams of makers, representing their school or local makerspace. Compete in a nerdy derby race, or show off your specialized vehicle on our dedicated power racing track!

It is always free to exhibit at Maker Faire Orlando and makers who also sell their goods will pay a small vendor’s fee.
