Annual Squamish ReUse It Fair

What is the ReUse It Fair?
An opportunity to bring your unwanted usable items or take away gently used treasures from someone else, for free. You don’t have to bring something to the ReUse It Fair to participate. You can simply come and take whatever treasures you find. 

The Squamish ReUse It Fair is organized by Squamish CAN in partnership with the District of Squamish.

What’s accepted?
– Small appliances in good working order or in need of minor repair.
– Large appliances in good working order.
– Gently used toys, books, clothing, baby supplies, DVD, CDs.
– Furniture, household items, garden tools, sports equipment in reasonable condition.

What’s not accepted?
– TVs, computers, printers, VCRs (recycle these at the Bottle Depot).
– Broken, unsafe toys, damages strollers, out-of-date children’s car seats.
– Mattresses (recycle these at the landfill).
– Items broken or damaged beyond repair.

Every year we need a lot of volunteers to be able to run the ReUse It Fair. If you can lend a hand (morning and afternoon shifts available), please contact our volunteer coordinators at


Next ReUse It Fair:


The District of Squamish and Squamish CAN regret to announce the cancellation of this year’s Reuse It Fair 2020.

Provincial Health orders indicate that gatherings of more than 50 people will not be allowed this summer and that physical distancing practices will need to continue. In addition, the Brennan Park arena will have ice re-installed at the beginning of August and so the Reuse It Fair cannot be postponed to the fall or winter as there are no suitable alternative locations. Residents who have items to share can rest assured that the Reuse It Fair will be back in the summer of 2021.
