2020 Tree Streets Yard Sale

The Tree Streets Yard Sale is cancelled for 2020.

UPDATE: July, 2020
For the health and well-being of our neighbors and community, the Southside Neighborhood Organization (SNO) announces that the 2020 Tree Streets Yard Sale has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
For the past 30 years the Tree Streets Yard Sale has grown from a handful of neighbors to a thriving event with almost 200 participating families and groups. Shoppers come from all over the region and neighboring states. SNO uses the proceeds from the yard sale to help fund Music In The Park, One Acre Cafe, historic preservation and other community projects. The yard sale has also become an important annual fundraising opportunity for local charities, non-profit organizations, churches, and student groups.
This was a hard decision to make for the organization but a necessary one and this will not be the end of this community tradition and beloved event. Look for it to come back in 2021 bigger and better than ever!
