Great Glebe Garage Sale - Sat. May 27, 2017

(Theme 7 – Waste, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: Glebe Community Association – Advocating for a liveable, sustainable, diverse urban neighbourhood

Timeline for Completion: Annual Event


The Great Glebe Garage Sale is a community event organized by the Glebe Community Association since 1986. Homeowners in the Glebe are the primary vendors working on their front lawns, driveways and porches. Collectively they make one giant sale that has become an annual community festival attracting thousands of people to the neighbourhood.

From the start of the Great Glebe Garage Sale in 1986, the Glebe Community Association has encouraged vendors (and shoppers) to voluntarily donate some of their proceeds to the Ottawa Food Bank. As a charitable organization, the Ottawa Food Bank will issue tax receipts for donations. Our goal is to raise $12,000 this year.

The sale is always the fourth Saturday in May; this year the sale takes place on Saturday May 27th, 2017 and runs from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
