Festival of Garage Sales


Garage Sale logo

Come join us May 4th and 5th for our annual Festival of Garage Sales!

This iconic neighborhood-wide garage sale has a long history. Started in the 1970s, the festival draws people from all over the city and beyond to Bryn Mawr for over 100 garage sales, along with eating and shopping at our local stores.

Saturday, May 4th from 9:00am to 5:00pm Sunday, May 5th from 9:00am to 5:00pm

There is still time to register your sale for the event! An $18 fee will get your sale on our map and master list. These will be posted on our website and available at businesses and registered sales for shoppers. The fee we collect helps to cover the many expenses associated with the garage sale. BMNA pays for a hired Minneapolis police officer to direct traffic at Penn Ave. S. and Cedar Lake Rd., port-a-potties for our shoppers and printing costs. All registered garage sales will receive a FREE Bryn Mawr Neighborhood car sticker. CLICK HERE for registration form. Registration ends at 10pm Tuesday April 30th.
