The 2020 Great Adirondack Garage Sale will be held this coming weekend, Aug. 7-9. In the past, the event was traditionally held on Memorial Day weekend, but due to safety concerns, it was pushed back to August for this year.
The 11th annual event consists of residents selling their items along a 150-mile trail stretching from Tupper Lake to Speculator, and Old Forge to Newcomb.
The weekend sale includes towns located along state Routes 28, 30 and 3, including: Old Forge, Inlet, Raquette Lake, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Long Lake, Tupper Lake, Cranberry Lake, Piercefield, Wanakena, Newcomb, and Speculator.
The website GreatAdirondackGarageSale.com includes an interactive map that showcases the sale locations for easy navigation. The listings also include a list of the sale items, entered by the seller.
For those interested in adding their garage sale to the event, simply go to the website and click the “add your sale” button. The listing is free.
The regional garage sale originated in 2010 when Long Lake linked up with Old Forge, Inlet, and Indian Lake to promote 70 miles of garage sales. The expanded event was initiated by Hamilton County in partnership with the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism.
Each community will also have a printed map to hand out during the event with mapped garage sale locations based on the website data. For questions about sales in your community, check the community contact information on the website.
Both buyers and sellers taking part in the Great Adirondack Garage Sale should continue to follow health and safety guidelines including social distancing, wearing a mask, and washing hands often.
