Old North End Repair Cafe is where you can bring stuff and volunteers fix it (or help you fix it yourself) for free! Just show up with it! We are an official Repair Cafe and are listed on repaircafe.org
The intention is to have them every third Saturday of the month. This month we are doing a Sunday! The next one is:
- Sunday August 22nd, 2021 from 11am – 3pm (we try not to accept walk-ins after 2:30pm)
- at 12 North Street, Burlington, VT
If you’re interested in volunteering (or at least want to get an email when the next one is happening), please fill out our volunteer interest form. Free food is provided for volunteers! No experience necessary, only curiosity 🙂
The facebook event is here.
Old North End Repair Cafe is funded in part by a generous grant from the Burlington Ward 2 & 3 Neighborhood Planning Assembly. In 2020 we were featured in the news on NBC.

Over the 4 events we’ve hosted, our repair success rate is 50.48%. It seems low but some items were partially repaired and some items are damaged beyond repair. And there’s always valuable information gained from troubleshooting!
