The Fixer Fair celebrates repair! Don’t recycle it, FIX it.  Don't buy a new one, make your old one better!

The Fixer Fair celebrates repair! Don’t recycle it, FIX it. Repairing things helps the environment, is more economical, and teaches engineering to adults and kids. Blenders, cell phones, toasters, bikes, art objects, clothes, rice cookers, vacuums, laptops...how many items in your home need repair? At the Fixer Fair attendees can bring things that need repairing and learn how to repair them or find someone who can. Local businesses that repair items can promote themselves and perform on-site repairs. We’ll have workshops about how to take apart, maintain and repair things. What do an auto mechanic, a computer technician and a tailor all have in common? They FIX things, and they can help you fix things too.

Produced in partnership with Dina Gjersten of Parts and Crafts.
