Fix-it Fair 2017

Saturday October 21st
Halifax Forum, Maritime Hall


A trade fair supporting local entrepreneurs in the business of repair and repurposing.

Workshops to help even the most un-handy person feel like they can tackle simple home repairs.

An art show showcasing original art made from recovered materials.

A food festival for local chefs and food rescuers to demonstrate fantastic ways to turn waste food into mouth-watering meals.

A DIYer’s paradise for inspiration and practical support.

Fix-It-Fair is all of these – and more. (And it’s free to attend!)

It’s a celebration of a culture of self-sufficiency, of supporting a local circular economy, and of helping our planet by reducing waste. And we want you to be part of it!

In 2016, Clean Foundation hosted our first Fix-It Fair to celebrate the ingenuity, innovation and creativity of businesses that are committed to reducing our provincial waste footprint. We want to build on last year’s success by broadening the array of participating businesses, artists and innovators. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, October 21st, the peak of National Waste Reduction Week, at the Halifax Forum.

This accessible and convenient venue has plenty of parking and will let us host more workshops, more vendors, more floor demonstrations, and more attendees.

  2. Could someone tell me who the upholstery representative was? This gentleman was located along the left wall – I think the second vendor spot – as you entered the location.
