Where can I park?
You may park in the Westlawn commercial parking garage located at 524 South Flower Street. 

PARKING UPDATE - PLEASE NOTE:  Flower Street has reopened on the weekends. Please enter and exit the Westlawn parking garage from Flower Street entrance; it's the first driveway, with a ramp going down. With the anticipated traffic congestion and several street closures and detours due to the construction work in the vicinity, please plan your travel time and route accordingly and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination.

When entering the garage after 9:30 am and exiting by 5:30 pm, parking is $1.00 flat rate with LAPL library card validation. To obtain a validation, you must show your Los Angeles Public Library library card at the Information Desk on the first floor during the regular Library hours. If you do not have a LAPL library card, you may apply for one on the day of the event. It's free to get a library card.

How can I participate as an individual or group Maker? How much does it cost?

The faire is FREE for all individuals, schools, groups, businesses, and organizations to participate and demonstrate what they make and/or how it works in an exhibit space; interactive exhibits are encouraged. For maker groups or organizations, please have one point person to coordinate your efforts.

The DTLA Mini Maker Faire provides all Makers that are participating with exhibit space, tables, chairs, power, etc., at no cost to the Makers.
