Vancouver Mini Maker Faire June 6 & 7 At The PNE Forum

11 May

VMMFDiagramVancouver Mini Maker Faire takes place June 6 and 7 at the PNE Forum. What is the Mini Maker Faire? Organizers will tell you it’s the Greatest Show and Tell on Earth. This is a two day family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness. You will get to see, touch, feel, learn, invent and experience it all first hand. There will be more than 100 exhibits and an amazing selection of workshops and presentations. There truly is something for every age and every interest. What exactly can you expect to find at Vancouver Mini Maker Faire? Well for starters there will be a Dark Matter Zone, a Textile Village, robotic dogs, homegrown drones, interactive art installations and chance to take a spin on an art t-shirt making bike. This event brings together Makers of every type including the City’s tech enthusiasts, crafters, librarians, science clubs, hobbyists, artists and imaginative kids all under one roof for two days.  You know those neat creative people that tinker away in their studios or garages for hours at a time, well now you will find them all in one place and you get to pick their brains about they do and why. Pretty neat if you ask us. So what do you make?  We all make something whether it’s our food, sewing, growing a garden, those cards that you made as a kid for Mother’s Day or that special Valentine. For this year’s Mini Maker Faire, you are invited to come build, craft, teach, hack, invent and learn. The Vancouver Mini Maker Faire encourages you to roll up your sleeve and take part in making something. Advance tickets for this event are now on sale at Mini Maker Faire.   There are rates for youth, students, adults, seniors and family rates, children 4 and younger get in free.  At the door tickets will be also available at the Front Gate on June 6 & 7, 2015.
