Late spring marks the start of Garage Sale Season, which means it must be time for Sunriver Estates’ Annual Community Yard Sale! This event, now in its seventh year, is a highlight for locals and visitors alike.
Mark your calendars! On Saturday, June 1st, between 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine, come by and check out the offerings. Past years have seen close to 100 homes participating in this fun community event. You are guaranteed to find something among the various offerings, including yard sale items, paintings, knitted crafts, plant starters, the Rotary Club Bike Sale, and so much more. Plus, the Sooke Harbourside Lions BBQ will also be on site to re-fuel you.
There are three entrances into the neighourhood, all off Phillips Rd: Sunriver Way (the main entrance), Willowpark Way, and Riverstone Drive. Please drive slowly and consider carpooling as there will be many vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians. If you aren’t familiar with Sooke, just plug 2350 Sunriver Way, Sooke BC into your GPS to find us.
To ensure that this event continues to be enjoyable for everyone, be mindful of residents and do not block driveways or fire hydrants. If you park alongside the road, be sure there is sufficient room for other vehicles to continue along the road. Bring your reusable bags and containers to carry your treasures and plan to take all garbage home with you. Please note that there are no public washrooms available on site.
If you have any questions or want more information, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to follow Sunriver Yard Sale on Facebook and @sunriveryardsale on Instagram for all the latest updates and to find the yard sale map.
We can’t wait to see you on Sale Day!
