The 2018 garage sale will be on Saturday June 9th, and the annual community picnic will be on Sunday, June 10th.

Several years ago, the picnic was joined by our giant community garage sale to make the Awesome Alta Vista Weekend. The garage sale gets bigger every year as residents realize that the growing number of visitors attracted to the event makes for a more successful garage sale.

Register your sale online

If you are having a garage sale on Saturday, June 9th, remember to register your sale online by sending an email with your address to – the sooner the better. This gets your house listed on our Google map. Every year, more and more people use the map to plan their route and navigate their way around the neighbourhood on garage sale day.

AVCA provides the event publicity and map. In exchange, we encourage garage sale vendors to become members of the community association and consider making a donation to the Heron Road Emergency Food Centre. The suggested donation is 5% of garage sale proceeds. It’s easy to donate – just go to and use the “Canada Helps” button to donate securely with PayPay, credit card or online debit/Interac.

The theme this year is Family Time!

The day after the garage sale is the volunteer-run community picnic, featuring new attractions. Fun for the whole family!
