Fall Festival Yard Sale & Flea Market


Event Details


The Sandy Pines Fall Festival Yard Sale & Flea Market 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 Yard Sale & Flea Market. The activities are held at the Flea Market Pavilion and the Yard Sale & Flea 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.

We are in need of 10 volunteers to make this event possible. Help is needed with crafts, handing out cider & doughnuts, lining up kids for the wagon rides and more. If you are interested please contact the Recreation Department at 616-896-8318 or recreation@sandypines.com.

Event Features

  • Yard Sale & Flea Market

*In case of inclement weather the family activities will be moved into the Phase 1 Indoor Pavilion. If the call on this needs to be made the night before or the morning of the event, and update will be posted in our Park News section of our Sandy Pines Members Page and our Facebook Page.  If the family festivities move indoors, we will not be charging for the Yard Sale and Flea Market Reservations. We will not cancel the Yard Sale and Flea Market so its up to those registered to show up and brave the elements.

Yard Sale & Flea Market

The Yard Sale and Flea 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. Both Yard Sale and normal Flea Market vendors are welcome at the market!

Reservations close Friday, October 5th at 12:00 pm. Once closed, we’ll assign spots and post a map on the Member Service Door on the north side of the Administration building.
