Portland Repair Fair is back this Saturday to fix your stuff for free.
Portland Repair Fairs are free events that bring together people with various skillsets to help fix items and, most importantly, pass on knowledge to empower you to be more handy around your home. You’ll be paired with a volunteer who will fix your item as you watch. You can sit back and enjoy the process or have the experts teach you how it’s done.
On Saturday, October 16, bring your broken household item to the Outdoor Repair Café. Volunteers will be fixing small appliances, mending garments, darning items, repairing bikes, and sharpening tools and knives. There will also be woodworking and welding services available.
The event is free to attend by appointment only. Register in advance to claim your spot at the repair fair. Masks are required.
The repair fair is taking place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Alder Commons, 4212 NE Prescott St. in Portland.
