Garage Sale

Albany Citywide Garage Sale

The Albany Citywide Garage Sale is held on the second Saturday in May each year. People from across the city host garage sales in front of their homes as a way to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials (and make a little extra cash!). The City of Albany partners with the City of El Cerrito to advertise for the Citywide Garage Sale.

The Citywide Garage Sale is a great way to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials. Items bought and sold at garage sales help reduce the amount of items that may otherwise be sent to the landfill. 

This year's Citywide Garage Sale will be held on:

Saturday, May 11,

9:00AM - 3:00PM

Registration is open to Albany residents only. Fee is $10. You may pay by cash, check, or credit card at the Finance Department at City Hall or mail a check to the address below. Please do not mail cash. Payment cannot be accepted over the phone. 

Please make checks payable to the City of Albany. Mail to: 
Attn: Elizabeth Carrade, Citywide Garage Sale
Community Development Department
1000 San Pablo Avenue, Albany CA 94706


Registration forms and fees are due no later than Wednesday, April 17 by 5:00PM. 

Your name, email address, and phone number will be kept confidential. We will publish addresses, cross streets, and sale items only.
