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.
