Fix-it Fair


Bainbridge Island's inaugural Fix-it Fair will be on Sunday, April 19, 2pm-5pm, at the Bainbridge Island Senior Community Center, 370 Brien Dr SE, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110.

Fix-it Fairs are three-hour events held in community spaces throughout Kitsap. At the events, skilled fixers provide free repairs for common household items and clothing. All repairs are first come, first served.

Register here to let us know what you’re bringing so we can plan the event at ,
or by contacting Gilian Engelson at or Caitlin Newman at 360-337-
4678. Your information will not be used for anything other than communicating about the Fix-It Fair. Walk-ins are also welcome.

Visitors check-in, sign waivers, and then wait for their name to be called. Visitors stay with their items during the repair and sometimes assist the fixer. Fixers assess the items and notify visitors if something cannot be repaired.

You can bring more than two items. After fixers work on your first two items, you can join the back of the waiting list with two more items (if there is enough time). Fixers will be available beginning at 2:00 pm. After 4:30pm, new repair requests will not be accepted. The event is family-friendly and snacks are provided.

Items should be small enough that they can be carried in by one person. Do not bring items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline or any other combustible fuel, or have a strong odor. Clothing that needs mending should be cleaned. If specialized parts are required, please bring those parts with you. Repairs are not guaranteed. Repair is free, but donations are gratefully accepted to support this and future fix-it events.

If you are interested in being a fixer or volunteer at the fair, please contact Gilian Engelson at or Caitlin Newman at 360-337-4678. Fixers bring their own tools
and the organizers provide common consumable supplies.

This event is being organized and supported by Bainbridge Island Senior Community Center, Zero Waste Washington, Kitsap County Government, Sustainable Bainbridge, and Bainbridge Island Library of Things.
