Past events have been hugely successful with over 3,000 visitors and 100 vendors! The event includes garage sale booths, educational booths, free book and magazine exchange table, entertainment, food, and more! With the holiday season approaching this is the perfect opportunity to purchase decorations or gifts at a thrifty price. Don't forget to bring your books and magazines for the free exchange table. There will be $2 early-bird admission between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. and $1 admission after 9:00.

Come and take advantage of this great opportunity to enjoy the last of this season's garage sales all in one convenient location. No driving around for addresses across town that waste gas! There will be over 100 garage sellers in one spot just waiting to pass their bargains and treasures on to you. In addition, this event is designed to be a nearly zero waste event, with compostable and recyclable waste being collected at waste stations staffed by Master Recycler volunteers.
