Fall Festival


Event Details

This event is running from 7 October 2017 until 6 October 2018. It is next occurring on October 6, 2018 9:00 am


The Sandy Pines Fall Festival is a new event for members to enjoy the beautiful park colors and get in one more celebration before the snow flies.  There are two components of the festival, the family friendly activities and the garage sale & market. The activities are held at the Flea Market Pavilion and the garage sale & market is held in the Flea Market Area. We had a good crowd for the inaugural event in 2017 and hope to continue the success to make this an annual staple on the event calendar.

Volunteers are needed to help setup and coordinate activities. If you are interested please contact Nikki Hoogewind at nikki@sandypines.com

Event Features

*These activities were featured at our inaugural 2017 event. Plans are underway for 2018 and some of these details may change.

Garage Sale & Flea Market

The garage sale and market will run just like our normal flea markets with just a few exceptions; spots will rent for $15 instead of $35, you’ll sign up for the spots online here instead of registering through your member web access and your account will be billed after the event. If the garage sale & market portion of the event is cancelled due to inclement weather, you will not be billed for the event. Both garage sale and normal flea market vendors are welcome at the market!

Reservations close Friday, October 5th at 3:00 pm. Once closed, we’ll assign spots and post a map on the Member Service Door on the north side of the Administration building.
