Vancouver Mini Maker Faire is coming up this weekend and we are happy to give one lucky reader a pair of tickets to the event! Maker Faire is a two-day celebration of making and creating. Some of the features include pyrotechnics, kinetic sculptures, interactive musical installations, and 3d printers that can print themselves. Interaction booths stationed throughout will centre around education: teaching people how to complete a circuit, spin wool, or smoke bacon!

There will also be a range of exhibits including a speaker series, performances, displays and workshops featuring Plush, Spool of Thread, the Fraser Valley Knitting Guild, Mighty Ugly and Science World among others.

How to enter! Just leave a comment below and a winner will be chosen at random on Friday, June 24th, 2011 at noon (PST).
