Sign up now to join the fun at the Thurston County Fair’s Community Garage Sale and Reuse Fair! This community event is being held on Saturday, October 1st from 8 am to 3 pm at the Thurston County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds are located at 3054 Carpenter Road in Lacey.

Past events have been a huge success with over 3,000 visitors and 175 vendors! For vendors, that’s a lot of customers to buy your re-useable treasures! The event includes garage sale booths, educational booths, free book and magazine exchange table, entertainment, food, and more! With the holiday season approaching this is the perfect opportunity to swap, trade, or purchase new decorations! Don’t forget to bring your books and magazines for the free exchange table. There will be $2 early-bird admission between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. and $1 admission after 9:00.

Sign up now to have a garage sale booth and get ready to clear out your clutter. Booth space is $25 for an outdoor space and $40 for a covered space (all approx. 10x10). Set up will be the Friday before from 12:00 noon until 10:00 p.m. The doors will be locked after set up Friday evening and security will be on-site until Saturday morning. Click here to fill out a booth space application.

Goodwill will have a trailer on-site and will be accepting donations (at their discretion) throughout the day. This is a great opportunity to donate your leftovers at the end of the day.

If you would like to have an educational booth, display, or be part of the presentations happening throughout the day sign up now! All community groups, non-profits, businesses, agencies and individuals working on sustainability issues are welcomed.
