                             EVENT PROTOCOL

* We will have a smaller number of volunteers at this event.

* We will control our visitor backlog to reduce the volume of people and time of waiting. We expect to resume registration if/when we can clear out the backlog.

* Visitors may register only ONE item at a time.

* Regrettably there will be no kids or puzzle tables nor food, coffee/tea at this event.  Please BYO! (Some café, huh?)

* We hope these measures keep us all safe and healthy and that we'll be able to resume normal operations soon! Your cooperation and understanding are appreciated! 

Don’t toss it, repair it!

Repair Café Five Cities supports reuse, repair, and waste prevention. Besides saving repairable items from landfill, our Repair Cafe is an amazing community of fixers and volunteers who are generous with their time and talent.

Five Cities Repair Café hosts quarterly events in Arroyo Grande, CA. Our events' fully/partially fixed rate is about 80%. So it's likely you’ll leave with your item repaired and some curiosity about how to repair other items in your world.

Originally founded in the Netherlands, the Repair Café got its U.S. start in Palo Alto, CA and we're grateful to its organizers who helped us get our own Repair Café established in the Five Cities on California's Central Coast in 2019.
