Vancouver Makers are congregating for the second ever Vancouver Mini Maker Faire this weekend, June 23rd-24th at the PNE Forum (That’s Vancouver, British Columbia – in Canada). The Vancouver Mini Maker Faire was founded by members of our local hackerspace, Vancouver Hack Space, with the help of eatART and Vancouver Community Lab.
Hosting a mini has been an amazing way for local maker groups to converge and cross-pollinate ideas. In our inaugural year, we had around 80 makers, and close to 3,000 attendees. This year we have over 100 makers, and a much larger venue to accommodate more attendees throughout the weekend. There will be bands, a young makers section, an eco village, and more. If you’re around, come check it out!
