The Great Glebe Garage Sale is an annual community garage sale and celebration of Spring. Homeowners in the Glebe set up sales on their front lawns, driveways and porches and Bank Street shops hold a massive sidewalk sale. Collectively it makes for one gigantic event attracting thousands of people to the neighbourhood. This year the sale takes place on Saturday May 26th, 2018 and runs from approximately 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m, rain or shine.
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. The best way to donate is through the Ottawa Food Bank’s dedicated web page at www.ottawafoodbank.ca/gggs. Last year’s sale raised over $14,000 for the Ottawa Food Bank – this year we hope to raise even more.
