Elk Valley Spring Clean – Garage Sale
Initially started in Fernie in 2014, this amazing community event has quickly spread to the whole of the Elk Valley. The weekend after May Long is your chance to grab a bargain or two. With 100s of individual garage sales throughout the whole community and even the retail stores joining in with sidewalk sales, there is a real sense of excitement throughout the three communities.

Make sure to register early (April) and get your trail map in The Free Press, who sponsor this fundraising event for The East Kootenay Brain Injuries Association. Plan your route and get out early to grab the best deals. As one shopper said of the event, "The annex was busier than Deerfoot on a Friday at 5pm."
