First Ever Fairport Garage Sale Weekend

FAIRPORT, NY – Bargain hunters will converge on Fairport and Perinton this weekend for one of the biggest community-wide fundraisers in the area.

Monique Hunter is one of the organizers of the Fairport Yard Sale Weekend. She says there will be more than 100 garage sales spread across the town and village on Saturday and Sunday.

Hunter says she and three other people from Fairport got together and asked the community who would be interested in hosting an event. She says the response they got was amazing.

“People are tired of being indoors,” Hunter said. “They got out of carpentry and they’re so happy to do this and get to know their neighbors.”

With so many garage sales, they needed a way to help people find them. So they display QR codes that will lead potential customers to a website with a map and addresses of all sales. Just use your phone’s camera to scan the code.

The event coincides with the BE YOU Race for Charity it happens on Sunday. It is organized by the non-profit organization Abilities Movement in Fairport. There will be signs posted during the Fairport Garage Sale weekend giving community members a way to sign up for a run or walk. Money raised will help Abilities Movement provide fitness, wellness, sports and community living opportunities for people of all abilities.

Fairport Yard Sale Weekend runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, Click here.
