Fix it Fair Poster

When: Saturday, October 21, 2023 from 9:30AM-1:00PM

Where: Charlottetown Library Learning Centre (97 Queen Street)

This event is free and family friendly and includes the following elements: Repair cafe, Hourly workshops, Community Groups, and more!! Take a look at the sidebar to learn about the three workshops that will be taking place and to reserve your space!
The Repair Café is a concept that communities throughout North America and Europe are embracing. It will feature talented fixers from a variety of expertise who have volunteered their services to assist in the free repair of various household items throughout this event. The role of the fixers is not only to repair broken items but to share their knowledge so participants can perform similar repairs at home.

Participants can bring in one item (such as a small appliance or item of clothing) per person to be repaired by the skilled on-site 'fixers', free of charge. 

Let us know if you're coming at our Facebook event page!
