Apply to be a Fix-It Fair Exhibitor or Presenter

The City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) invites applications for exhibitors and presenters for the 2017-2018 Fix-It Fair season.

Fix-It Fairs are free events where neighbors come together to learn simple and effective ways to save money and stay healthy at home during winter and beyond. Past topics include home repairs and maintenance, resource conservation, active and healthy lifestyles, and money saving tips.

BPS does not endorse specific organizations, products or services that are present at Fix-It Fairs. Our mission at the Fix-It Fair is to connect people with resources that encourage healthful and sustainable choices that foster a more sustainable community. There is no cost to be an exhibitor or presenter.

Exhibitor and workshop space at Fix-It Fairs is limited, and BPS reserves the right to provide exhibit and classroom space to organizations that we, in our sole discretion, deem to best match our mission. The Fix-It Fairs are not vendor fairs or trade shows. Private companies seeking solely to promote a service or product for a profit will not be considered.
