On Sunday, November 24th, from 12-3 PM community members will be able to get many common household items repaired for free at the winter Fix-it Fair. The event will be held at Lane Events Center in partnership with the ToolBox Project and the Lane County Farmers Market.
Volunteers and professionals will provide repairs and attendees will have opportunities to get their items repaired and even learn how to repair their items with coaching from participating Fixers. Attendees are invited to bring one item per person that is in need of repair such as a tool in need of sharpening or repair, a small appliance (like a lamp or toaster), small electronics, an item of furniture, or a bicycle. No gas-powered items. Other exclusions may apply.
Fix-it Fairs are first-come, first-serve. Space is limited. These events are free and open to everyone. Activities for kids and families will be available. Stay tuned for more details about this event.
The primary goals of the Fix-It Fairs are to raise awareness of repair as a viable option in our community and reduce waste associated with broken items.
For more information about how to participate in this event as a volunteer, Fixer, or attendee, visit the ToolBox Project Fix it Fair web pages, or email Deveron Musgrave, Waste Prevention Analyst, City of Eugene.
