Jacksonville City Wide Yard Sale

Join us for the yard sale of the year in Jacksonville. A community-oriented event, this weekend (always the first weekend after Labor Day) is a no-host event, meaning it isn’t sponsored or coordinated by an organization or the city. It is simply a weekend designated by the city for residents to have yard sales without the need for individual permits.

2020 COVID-19 NOTICE

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the City of Jacksonville will not issue permits to outside vendors during this time and strongly recommends against individual residential yard sales this year.

The City of Jacksonville and the Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce do not have any role in planning, sanctioning, or authorizing yard sales, as they are held by individuals at their discretion.

As all sales are held by private parties. Any yard sales are the sole responsibility of the residents holding them. Please observe appropriate health and distancing guidelines.

Sales hours are 7:00 am – 8:00 pm Friday – Sunday. Set-Up is allowed on Thursday, 6:00 – 10:00pm (No Sales Allowed).

The city’s General Policy for the City-Wide Yard Sale

Please note the Trolley Tours will NOT be running on yard sale days. This is related to safety concerns due to the level of vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Don’t Live Here But Have Stuff to Sell?

Non-residents (meaning anyone outside of the city limits – it doesn’t matter if you have a Jacksonville mailing address – can you tell we get these questions a lot?) and out-of-town organizations wanting to participate need to find someone (resident/business) in town who will give them permission to use their property for a sale. And no, the Chamber of Commerce is not a resource for this.

Parking for the Sale

The large number of people and the resulting increase in vehicular and pedestrian traffic increases the need for the city to enforce safety regulations. This includes keeping public right-of-ways (streets, intersections and sidewalks) clear and accessible. Illegal parking makes it more dangerous for all people involved.

The police will be ticketing illegally-parked vehicles. We want you to have a safe and enjoyable time while you are in Jacksonville, so please be sure you follow the law and the city parking map.

Parking Guidelines
These guidelines are supported by the Jacksonville Municipal Code and the Oregon Revised Statutes.

  • Never stop your vehicle in the middle of the road
  • The yellow, red and green markings on the roadway and curbs indicate that parking is either not allowed or limited. Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Never park within 20 feet of an intersection whether the curb or ground is painted or not unless a designated parking space is indicated
  • Public safety vehicles must be able to travel safely down all streets in case of an emergency
  • Do not park with any portion of your vehicle extending into the roadway
  • If the road is painted with no parking and/or a yellow, red or green line, pulling into the area inside of that line no matter how far off the street the vehicle is, is still considered illegally parking
  • Timed parking will be enforced
  • Handicapped parking will be enforced
  • There is absolutely no parking on North Fifth St/HWY 238
  • California/HWY 238 is actually a State Highway and subject to tickets associated with the Oregon State Police and Jackson County Sheriff Department
  • Read the signs at the beginning and ending of each block to see if parking is limited in that area
