VILLAGE-WIDE GARAGE SALES
The Village of Pingree Grove's Community Events Committee hosts an annual village-wide garage sale on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, of the third week in June (Father's Day weekend). Registration and an approved permit are required to participate. The cost of a garage sale permit is $10. Participation in the village-wide garage sale does not count against the allowed number of residential garage sales.
The Community Events Committee will publish a map indicating the location of all permitted garage sale participants and a brief list of sale items. A cut-off date for inclusion on the map will be published in the future. The village-wide garage sale takes place rain or shine! No rain date. Register for village-wide garage sale here.
