[ARCHIVED] Community Garage Sale THIS Weekend!

Each year, the Village of Westmont and the Westmont Special Events Corporation (WSEC) organize a Community-Wide Garage Sale event, which encourages residents to hold their garage sales during the same weekend to bring out the bargain hunters en masse. This year’s event will be held Friday & Saturday, August 12 & 13. Garage sales will be held both days between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. No garage sale permit is necessary for this specific event on these dates.

“This is a year popular annual event and we typically have over 100 participants,” says Westmont Communications Director Larry McIntyre. “There is definitely a ‘green’ aspect to this event. The community garage sale is a great chance for people to find some bargains, and at the same time, prevent items that still have value from being thrown away and sent to a landfill.”

The Village of Westmont and Westmont Special Events will publicize this event on the Village Website and social media as well as have printed copies of the sale addresses available at the Village Hall, Park District, Westmont Library, and Westmont Special Events Office at Westmont Centre, 1 S. Cass. Participants are encouraged to promote their sales individually as well.

For more information regarding the community garage sale event, contact Westmont Special Events at or 630-829-9378.
