Toss it? No way!

The Oak Park Repair Café meets the first Saturday of the month, at the Fox Park field house, in Fox Park, 624 S. Oak Park Ave.

Repair coaches will be available to help you fix anything from small appliances to torn clothing.

The Oak Park Repair Café is free and open to the public; since we started in 2013 we’ve kept over 700 items out of the landfill!

Please note, masks and proof of vaccination ARE NO LONGER REQUIRED, per public health mandates.

We open at 10:00 a.m. and close at 1:30 p.m.

Given the increase in volume we request each guest bring one item for repair.

Thank you, and looking forward to seeing you there!
