Garage Sale


Maine Township's 18th annual 80-family Community Garage Sale will be held, rain or shine, on September 21, 2024 from 9 am – 3 pm in the parking lot of Maine Township Town Hall, 1700 Ballard Road, Park Ridge. Space reservations for Maine Township residents will be accepted beginning August 1, 2024 at 9 am and on August 8, 2024 at 9 am for all others. Spaces are sold on a first-come, first-served basis and always sell out quickly.

All shoppers can register to win one of two children's bicycles that will be given away. Free coffee will be provided courtesy of Maine Township Supervisor Karen J. Dimond, and donuts and lunch items will be available to purchase. Don't miss this popular event filled with bargains and fun for the whole family!

The event is organized by the MaineStay Youth & Family Services Department of Maine Township and was sponsored last year by Journal & Topics Newspapers, Chicago Behavioral Hospital, Parkway Bank, State Senator Laura Murphy, International Bank of Chicago, State Representative Michelle Mussman, and Garvey's Office Products.

All proceeds from the event benefit the Adventure Maine Township Summer Camp. This camp program, coordinated by the Township’s MaineStay division since 2004, provides at-risk youth who qualify based on family income the opportunity to participate in safe, fun, and educational experiences to which they may not otherwise have access.
