Calling all volunteers!

You are needed for the Shreveport-Bossier Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, September 7, 2019 from 11 am – 5 pm, the Louisiana State Fairgrounds Agriculture Building, 3701 Hudson Avenue, Shreveport, Louisiana 71109. This year’s event is organized by staff from NWLA Makerspace, Caddo Parks and Recreation and Sci-Port. Note: Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer on their own. Volunteers under 18 may participate, but they must have a parent/adult working with them during their shift.)

The Fairgrounds have several facilities once you get to the address.

The actual building is here. Agriculture Building


Why Volunteer?

The Mini Maker Faire cannot happen without you! Many volunteers are needed to make this event possible. Please consider volunteering your time prior to, during, or after the event.  Only through the help of many volunteers can we meet our goal of making this event an enjoyable experience for Makers and guests alike.

What would I do as a volunteer?

Tasks include event setup, tear-down, assisting the Makers, front gate help, general assistance, helping with the Maker Family Zone (hang out with your friends and act important), many more. There’s something for everyone! With our web-based sign up, you can choose what you want to do and when you want to do it.

We will be updating volunteer needs until the start of the event.  If none of these work, but you want to be notified of new positions, or if you have questions, comments, or special limitations of which we should be aware, emails us at to let us know.

How do I get started?

Sign Up!

Click here or use the logo to the right to sign up: Volunteer

Look through the listing of available positions and times.  If there is a number in parentheses next to an available shift name, it means we are looking for more than one person for that specific shift.  Click the “Sign Up” box to volunteer for the shift(s) you prefer, and then click the “Submit and Sign Up” button at the bottom of this page.  Complete the form on the next page.

You do not have to become a SignUp Genius member to volunteer (but frankly it’s easier for you to revise your selections and for us to track you over time.)  Either way, after selecting preferred shift(s), click the “Sign Up Now!” button, and you’re done.  You will receive a confirmation by email and a reminder email a few days in advance of the event.

Please note, we may solicit you to perform a different duty as tasks, last minute emergencies, and volunteers vary.  We will work to ensure reassigned tasks are in keeping with your original request.


Please share the event with your friends and family on our Facebook Page!


Thank you for your help!
We look forward to seeing you at the Shreveport-Bossier Mini Maker Faire.
