Great Glebe Garage Sale 2021

Great Glebe Garage Sale supporting the Ottawa Food Bank

The Great Glebe Garage Sale is a popular community event held in the Glebe on the fourth Saturday in May since 1986, when it was established by the Glebe Community Association. This year’s sale looks a little different due to COVID-19. Normally, homeowners in the Glebe are the primary vendors from their front lawns, driveways and porches. Collectively they make one giant sale (and awesome recycling event) that has become an annual community festival attracting thousands of people to the neighbourhood.

From the start of the Great Glebe Garage Sale, the Glebe Community Association has encouraged everyone to voluntarily donate some of their proceeds to the Ottawa Food Bank. In 2019, the neighbourhood raised almost $12,000 for the Ottawa Food Bank.

This year, Great Glebe Garage Sale Give Shop fundraising group will open for the posting of donated items on the Give Shop marketplace on May 28th. Buyers can make offers starting a week later, on June 4, 2021.

This online donation page is where we gratefully accept any donations in addition to your purchases.
