It takes place Saturday June 25th and Sunday June 26th at Great Northern Way Campus Center for Digital Media at 577 Great Northern Way (aka 2nd Ave, between Main & Clark).

You might be wondering what a Maker Faire is, and I was too. It is a type of high tech craft faire, but is more about sharing your creations and knowledge than selling them.
This video might explain it better:
QUEST on KQED Public Media.
Makers at the Vancouver Faire will be featuring creations such as:
– a 5m tall wearable walking machine
– an amphibious electromechanical reincarnation of the ancient 50ft serpent
– micro-hydro power generator
– DIY Electroluminescent wire bike kits
– spin art
– a 3d printer that prints itself
– and so much more, see the list of the all the makers here
You can get tickets online here.
And there is a great preview of the workshops that will be happening at the Maker Faire here. This looks like a great event for kids.
