9am – 12pm

Pleasant Ridge Recreation Center — 5915 Ridge Avenue Cincinnati, Ohio 45213 MAP

Join us at Repair Fair Cincy, an all-ages, do-it-together community event. Bring your broken household items and learn how to repair them instead of sending them to the landfill.

Repair volunteers (“Fixers”) will be available to repair and teach you how to fix your item.

Of course, there is no guarantee you’ll walk out with a workable item. We may not have staff with the right skills; we may not have the right repair parts on hand, or it may just not be feasible to repair your item. But we’ll give it our best shot!

• Clothing & fabric items
• Skateboards
• Bikes
• Small electronics (counter top appliance, lamps, toys)
• Tool sharpening

NO: Computers, phones, TVs, large items, or hazardous materials.

• First come, first served. A maximum of one broken item per person will be examined.
• Dropping off of items for repair will not be permitted. Attendees should plan to stay with their items.
• All ages are welcome, but a parent or guardian must accompany children under the age of 13.

Tool Sharpening, 10:30 a.m. Peter Huttinger from Turner Farms will teach you how to keep tools like shovels working their best using a simple sharpening method.
