Thank you to everyone who came out to support our first Rethink, Reuse, Repair Fair!

CVC Repair Fair Logo USE.png

The 2024 Rethink, Reuse, Repair Fair was a big success! Thank you to everyone who came out to participate on such a lovely spring day, and we can't wait to host the next one!


Before you throw an object away--Rethink, Reuse, Repair Fair is here to teach you how to give new life to old stuff!

Connect with people and businesses who specialize in repairing and reusing objects. Extending the lifespans of our possessions reduces waste as well as environmental impacts.


Vendors will be able to help visitors repair their things on site or provide the contacts and resources for future repair services. There will also be workshops and demonstrations for people to learn how to repair and upcycle things on their own.
