Grove Garage Sale - Info and Registration


Every year, on the first Saturday of May, interested residents throughout Churchill's Grove hold their annual garage sales on the same day, rain or shine, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.   The result is an event which attracts attendees from all over the Rockford metro area and beyond, creating an atmosphere that is a cross between a flea market and a neighborhood block party! 

Features will include a Concession Stand, live music and a Rest Area with tables & chairs (located on Sherman St. between Camp and Harlem).  There will also be Port-a-Potties available.

Participating food vendors will include:

J&C Old Fashioned Ice Cream - with floats and ice cream

Anjan’s Eats – bourbon and applewood smoked meats, pork chops, chicken, hot dogs, and maybe burgers

Rustic Oven Wood Fired Pizza 

LuLu’s Roasted Corn

So, if you enjoy strolling through historic neighborhoods and rummaging through block after block of treasures, we invite you to mark your calendar and plan to join us here in the Grove in early May!

On Garage Sale weekend each year, as of late Wednesday night, you can click on this link to a "Downloadable Map" of the neighborhood and list of the addresses of Garage Sales, including highlights of some of the items they have for sale.  If you have questions, please contact
