Dare to Repair

November 18, 2023 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

Dare to Repair Cafe is a popup community event where you can bring a broken item and work with a team of fixers to try and repair the item for free.

The goal is to share repair skills, save money, and keep things in circulation and out of the landfill for as long as possible. 

Fall 2023 Schedule:

  • September 16, 11am-2pm – Elaine M. Panty Branch Library (Riverside), 820 Tonawanda St., Buffalo
  • October 21, 11am-2pm – Orchard Park Library, S-4570 South Buffalo St., Orchard Park
  • November 18, 11am-2pm – UB Allen Hall (UB South Campus), Main and Bailey, Buffalo
  • December 9, 11:30am-2:30pm – North Park Library, 975 Hertel Ave., Buffalo

Not all fixers can make every event, so registering ahead of time helps ensure there is someone who can fix your item. Replacement parts are limited, so bring ‘em if ya got ‘em!

Fixers can help with repairs such as:

  • Small appliances
  • Lamps
  • Vacuums
  • Small electronics
  • Clothing and textiles
  • Bicycles
  • Please note we are unable to work on gas-powered items, cellphones, tablets, or televisions
